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
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
came Blue Springs Landing is visited by many persons every year. Visitors swim
in the springs and gather on the banks of the stream from the spring where it flows down to the St. Johns River. Wonderful Manatees come to river each winter. Because the water is so clear, it is possible to see and photograph them easily and in detail. Now known as Blue Springs Park, you may look the park up on line for further information.
