Inscription.  Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), was internationally accepted as an extremely gifted psychic. An humble man, he never profited materially from his psychic ability, but used it to help “make manifest the love of God and man.” Operated his photography studio and lived in this building from 1912 until 1923. Many psychic readings were given here during that time.
