The Devil's Cabinet: The Story of the Eddy Family from Chittenden, VT

Jason Smiley

About 45 people gathered at the Steele Room to listen to Jason Smiley's presentation on the Eddy Family, spiritualism and seances.  

William and Horatio Eddy

The Eddy Brothers were William and Horatio Eddy, two American mediums best known in the 1870s, who claimed psychic powers. While the two brothers’ names became iconic, they had other siblings, including sisters, that also exhibited psychic abilities and performed shows with them.
