Join Weird Homes Tour and Atlas Obscura for a wonderfully odd look into the most unusual homes and the fascinating people who live in them.
By popular demand, historian and self-professed occult archeologist Brandon Hodge is back and invites you in for a virtual home tour this May. He'll reveal his massive collection of artifacts and relics of Spiritualism, a religious movement that gained popularity in the 19th century. You'll see fragments of the house in Wayne County, New York, where the Spiritualism movement started, Ouija boards, and many more spectral objects used to contact the departed.
Ghosts are welcome and may view this online experience at no cost.
Our partners at Weird Homes Tour offer a series of virtual and physical tours that allow you to visit the inside of homes, and meet collectors of oddities, rare art collectors, performance artists, painters, sculptors and architects in cities all across the USA. As you browse their 100+ homes you will see that they reject cookie cutter design and architecture and embrace the wonderfulness of weird. Check out their instagram for more amazing photos and stories.

Brandon Hodge is a collector, author, historian, and a self-described “occult archeologist” who specializes in historical spirit communication devices. Long fascinated by the bizarre occult world of tipping tables, séances, Spiritualism, and ghostly encounters, Brandon acquired his first writing planchette while building a traveling spookshow featuring “haunted” antiques in the late 1990s. He has since amassed the world's largest and finest collection of writing planchettes and other séance-related artifacts, all featured on his popular website, MysteriousPlanchette.com. Brandon is a respected scholar and internationally-recognized lecturer who has leant his expertise in the occult field to museums, colleges, and institutions worldwide. His home is filled with an expansive collection of automatic writing planchettes, Ouija, séance relics, and other occult antiquities.
