The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County invites you to attend our second installment of Edgar Cayce 101, a series that examines the life and work of our county’s most famous son. Remaining programs will be held on the following Saturdays: July 23 and November 19 from 10:30am-12pm. Programs will be at the Pennyroyal Area Museum.

We have all heard of Edgar Cayce, but many of us do not know much about the phenomenal life that he led. The most well-documented psychic of the 20th century, the father of holistic medicine, a medical clairvoyant, the sleeping prophet: these terms have all been used to describe this Christian County native. But what does it all mean? In this series conducted throughout 2016, we will discuss his roots in Hopkinsville and Christian County and learn more about his contributions to humanity. All sessions are FREE and open to the public.

Please join us for the second program in the series:

Saturday, July 23: Edgar Cayce’s Hometown with William T. Turner (previously scheduled for May 14)

Hopkinsville-Christian County Historian William T. Turner knows more about Edgar Cayce’s family roots in Hopkinsville than anyone in this community. Come to this presentation to learn about Cayce’s local heritage and how growing up here contributed to his astonishing gifts. The program features historic photographs of the area and of Cayce’s family that have been collected and compiled for decades.

Mark your calendars for the final session:

Saturday, November 19: Living with Gratitude
