Mrs. C.M. Stowe was a prominent Spiritualist who traveled the Pacific Coast during the 1860’s and 1870’s giving lectures and offering her many clairvoyant talents. She appeared at the Vesey House (later known as the Gold Hill Hotel) in April of 1866 to lecture and offer clairvoyant physician services. Stowe was a speaker, as well as medical and business clairvoyant. She was well respected by both believers and non-believers of the Spiritualist movement during a time when America was grieving the loss of loved ones lost in the battles of the American Civil War, and struggling to connect with them once again. She was also an advocate for woman’s rights and a respected heroine reformer.
