Paranormal Investigation at The Kilmer Building
October 7 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$45
Join the Empirical Paranormal team to investigate The Kilmer Building!
Originally built in 1903 as the manufacturing facility for “Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp-Root,” The Kilmer Building in Binghamton, New York is a Renaissance-style structure that stands tall at the corner of Chenango and Lewis Streets. The building has a rich history that is closely tied to the Kilmer Family and their successful Swamp Root tonic, which was marketed as a “medicinal formula” for curing liver, kidney, and bladder ailments. The story of Swamp Root, and the Kilmer Family, is closely tied to the city’s growth as a center of manufacturing in the late 19th and early 20th.
Today, The Kilmer Building provides retail and business space, as well as upscale housing. Thanks to people like the Whitneys and Mr. Dietrich, it will stand for many more years as a Binghamton landmark and a monument to the entrepreneurial spirit of Willis Kilmer.
All proceeds support the restoration of Kilmer Mansion!
