Lily Dale is a spiritualist community of the Modern Spiritualist movement located in Chautauqua County, New York. It is in the Town of Pomfret at the north end of Cassadaga Lake, near the Village of Cassadaga.
The basis for the community is the collective belief in survival of life after death in a form that enables the living to continue communication with the departed.
The community provides a series of seminars and meetings throughout the year. There is a fee for admission to the grounds, which include a museum, bookstore, snack bar. Also of note to the potential tourist is the Lily Dale pet cemetery.
The childhood home of the Fox sisters was moved from Hydesville, New York to Lily Dale. The sisters are considered to be the primary founders of modern spiritualism.
