The Pennyroyal Area Museum recently held its 20th annual Edgar Cayce seminar, who most people consider as Hopkinsville’s most famous resident.
Known as the sleeping prophet, Cayce would go into self-induced trances and give readings on individuals he never met and was able to cure them of their illnesses.
In some reported cases, Cayce even gave readings on various topics like war and politics.
Museum Director Alissa Keller says Cayce had a special gift and that his readings continue to impact the lives of individuals today.
Keller then went on to say that Cayce was able to make predictions and cure people of illnesses despite not having any training in the medical field.
Local historians believe Edgar Cayce gave thousands of readings during his life-time in the early 20th Century.
