Cassadaga, a small, unincorporated town in Florida, is home to 40 psychics. The town thrives on allegedly helping visitors make contact with their dead loved ones. Some psychics working in Cassadaga claim that everyone is guided by a spirit that once belonged to a living person. Visitors are asked to take pictures of a lake so that they may capture images of the spirits that allegedly hover over it, and, the BBC reporter visiting the town met a fellow visitor who did take a picture of the lake with mysterious markings on it.
While some of the tourists who flock to the town remain sceptical, others derive a sense of comfort from their experiences there (BBC).
