As I mentioned in my previous post, Hydesville is Southeast of Rochester, NY (US).  It’s the foundation point for Modern Spiritualism, and is where the Fox sisters heard raps from a deceased peddler.  The town of Palmyra is nearby.  It is the foundation point for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), (a.k.a. the Mormons), and is where Joseph Smith talked with the angel Moroni and discovered the plates, which became the book of Mormon.

Lily Dale is in Cassadaga, NY, which is about two hours drive from Rochester, and it is the capital of Spiritualism in the US.

The Genessee river runs through the middle of Rochester, and it flows from South to North, which is a rarity on our planet.  (In addition to the Nile, there are other rivers that flow from South to North.)

Do these spiritual influences and the geography of the region somehow go together?  I’m not sure, but I’d like to know.
