Do spirits return, and can we communicate with the dead?  Baltimore’s Spiritualists thought so, but magicians worked to disprove them.  Learn about spirit mediums, the Ouija Board, and Baltimore’s group of amateur magicians, the Demons Club. Club. Presented by Julie Saylor, Enoch Pratt Free Library.

Julie Saylor has served as a library associate with Enoch Pratt Free Library for 33 years in
many different departments at Central Library. Her current home is the Maryland

land records, and the history of Spiritualism in Baltimore. Julie is the mother of two grown

Natural History Society of Maryland’s Archaeology Club promotes the value of archaeology in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, and surrounding areas. The goal of the Archaeology Club is to educate citizenry in the ethics, methods, and artifact preservation methods of archaeology and how archaeology can be used to document, discover, and promote local history. The Archaeology Club is inclusive to all persons who have an interest in archaeology.

However, during COVID, NHSM is opening up this meeting to all, though we are asking for a $5 donation from non-members. If you are an archaeology enthusiast, please consider joining us.
