COMMANDMENTS AND MY STATUES, ACCORDING TO ALL             
THE LAW WHICH I COMMANDED YOUR FATHERS, AND                    
WHICH I SENT TO YOU BY MY SERVANTS THE PROPHETS..
CASSADAGA, FLORIDA
HOME OF THE
Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association.

.Founded in 1875 by George Colby, who was told in a vision that
he would found a Spiritualist Camp. George  Colby traveled
by train to Jacksonville, Florida and then by riverboat down
the St. Johns river to a landing  called " Blue Springs" where
his Spirit Guide told him to leave the boat. Florida was very wild.
The hike through the dense forests was hot and difficult.  They
walked until they reached a spot where the wilderness opened
and a small, beautiful lake lay in front of them. In this moment, the
Spirit Guide appeared again and told him that this was the place. A
place of very special energy where he would create a very special
place for people to follow him.
Most came in January and stayed until the harsh winter in the
north ended.
place of very special energyGeorge P. Colby was born January 6, 1848 in Pike, Allegheny County, New York. He was well known as a trance medium  and traveled widely giving private Readings and holding Seances. He acquired the name of "The Seer of Spiritualism". During these years Spiritualism was a source of much interest and controversy.  Much has been written about his Spirit Guide, named Seneca, who was an American Indian. Seneca was a strong influence in George Colby's life; and, the one who guided his journey to Florida for the founding of the camp known as the Southern Cassadaga Camp  Meeting Association.  In the beginning, those who

About Us

Luke 1:70
AS HE SPAKE BY THE MOUTH OF       
HIS HOLY PROPHETS, WHICH HAVE    
BEEN SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN
The constant temperature of the spring waters made temperatures near
the spring cool in the summer and pleasantly warm in the winter; so, the
area was a place that residents as well as visitors came to relax and
enjoy the natural beauty of Florida. For these early settlers and visitors, it
was all new and so different to anything they had ever known.
Manatees fascinated newcomers to Florida, residents and visitors
alike. In the river traffic on the St. Johns River has killed many of
them and they are endanger of extinction. In the winter, they
crowd the stream that runs from Blue Springs to the river. People
gather to see and photograph them under the crystal clear water.
Most people find them much larger than they expect. Even today,
the Manatees and the people come.;right on schedule every
winter.
