Edgar Cayce's Hometown
Edgar Cayce s Hometown chronicles the first thirty-five years of Cayce s life in Kentucky. Hopkinsville is where this native son developed his remarkable psychic talents and embarked upon a lifetime of service to God and to mankind. This agricultural community, with its economy based on corn, wheat, dark tobacco, livestock, and hog production nearly doubled its population to slightly fewer than 10,000 residents during Edgar Cayce s time there. From the first psychic reading given in Hopkinsville in 1901 until the last in Virginia Beach, Virginia, in 1944, Edgar Cayce gave 14,256 clairvoyant and medical readings.
