Dowsing, Water Witching, Rutengehen or Gift?

Event Details

Jun 16

Calling all Skeptics, Believers, and Curious! Mike Gerhard, a Dowser, will share his experience at 2:00 p.m. Dowsing has been utilized, discussed, and debated for centuries around the world. Dowsing is the technique of utilizing a forked stick, rod, pendulum, or similar instrument to seek underground water, minerals, or other hidden or missing objects. Dowsing has been depicted in cave paintings, Egyptian sketchings, and Chinese engravings, among other places, as a means for finding items important to others. From 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., visit the Manheim Railroad Station Museum to see our newest HUGE artifact, in addition to ironwork stove plates, Stiegel-type glass, an 1881 train office, and separate waiting rooms. The Kendig Library upstairs houses an important collection of objects from Manheim's industrial revolution. Visit next door for the Stiegel Valley Model Railroad Museum. Don't forget to ride the Birney Trolley (weather permitted).
