Restoring the Schoolhouse – Brick by Brick

After the exciting completion of the roof, dormers and upper windows, we thought we were heading inside. Unfortunately, our attention has been brought to the desperate situation of the exterior brick walls. The low cost estimates place this repair/restoration at $35,000. After the expenditures to complete the roof area, $3500 remains in the account. We will build upon the $3500 and would hope that you will join us in completing this aspect of the project.

Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support. 

Help Us Make History – September 6, 2018



Help us make new history…
We can’t do this without you!

The Journey Within is pleased to announce it has purchased the historic schoolhouse across from the Fox Sisters’ cottage in Newark, “Hydesville”, New York.

We’ve been guided back to the historical beginnings of Spiritualism with the availability of this historic building in proximity to the Fox Cottage at this time.

The people of our generation are the stewards of Spiritualism. It is our responsibility to re-ignite an interest in and understanding of our beloved Spiritualism and to nurture its future. We believe this project will breathe new life into our movement.

The Temple of Peace, as it will be called, will be named in honor of our Spiritualist pioneers.

This portion of New York State is known as the ‘Burnt-Over District’. Many new religions and movements have originated in this area. 

Our ultimate goal for renovation/repairs is to raise $250,000. Our first need is a new roof.

Help us to create this sacred space to hear the new whisperings of Spirit.

Any donation, no matter how small is very much appreciated. All donations are tax deductable and 100% of your donation goes towards this project.

Thank you!!
