Karen Tatro ~Spirit Medium
I have always had a connection with the spirit world. From the time I was a small child, I could see, hear and feel the presence of spirits and knew beyond my intellect that the Divine Spirit world existed. I have often described my life as having, "one foot on Earth and one in the Clouds". I embrace and share my abilities for the purpose of inspiration, wisdom, and healing.
I really began my deep inner quest when I started my magazine; The Mirror Magazine, which encompasses the overall conceptual belief that I have; we are all connected. I use this gift in many ways; assisting home owners with paranormal activity, educating the public about my passion to bring "Spirituality to the Paranormal", and offering Mediumship readings and galleries for people wanting to connect with their Guardians, passed loved ones, and Higher Beings. My cases, as well as my magazine have been featured on Syfy's Ghost Hunters TAPS, and My Ghost Story, Bio Channel.
I have been holding Paranormal Events across the Southern New England States, locations such as the Lizzie Borden House, The Shanley Hotel, The Black Swan Inn, The Toll Booth Tavern, The Houghton Mansion, Vanderbilt House to name a few. It is my passion and I welcome you to explore with me.

Meet your Location!!
The George & Rebecca Barnes Foundation was formed to meet the growing demands of preservation, restoration and maintenance of 930 James street, the original home of George and Rebecca Barnes. The Foundation’s goal is to preserve the home and educate the general public about the significance of the home and its original occupants.
George and Rebecca Barnes built the home in 1853. Their home was the center for meetings with other notables such as Rev. Samuel May, Gerrit Smith and The Stantons, Elizabeth Cady and her husband Henry.
As ardent abolitionists, George and Rebecca placed themselves in danger to help slaves flee to safety. Along with other prominent citizen’s, such as the Sedgwicks, Wilkinsons, Amoses and Hiscocks; George Barnes paved the way for change that can still be felt today. The mansion has been recognized as a stop on the Underground Railroad and is listed on the National Parks Underground Railroad Network to Freedom.
The Barnes Daughter, Mary Elizabeth, married Frank Hiscock and inherited the house in 1895. The Hiscocks undertook a three year renovation to convert the original two story Italianate villa into a three story Georgian Colonial. Many renovations were made, but the original footprint of the house remains. The Hiscocks also chose to keep the dining room as it was when it was redecorated in 1884. Today, we can celebrate the history that took place in this beautiful, architecturally rich building
After Judge Hiscock's death in 1946, the house was donated to the Syracuse Foundation. Then in 1948, Lemoyne College held its first classes in the historic mansion. The Corinthian Club purchased the building in 1949 and used it as their club house. For over sixty years their stewardship preserved the last remaining mansion on James Street. The Barnes Foundation received the house as a gift from the Corinthian Club in 2009 and continues the preservation and restoration of the Barnes Hiscock Mansion
