Dowsers began meeting together in the rural farmlands of northern Vermont, sharing their techniques, exploring the terrain, and helping to place wells for local farmers and families. Their meetings laid the groundwork for both the incorporation of the American Society of Dowsers as a non-profit organization, and for the annual tradition of the ASD National Convention and Dowsing Schools.
The American Society of Dowsers was incorporated in the State of Vermont, adopting its founding mission to teach, promote, and preserve the practice of dowsing in the United States of America.
The American Society of Dowsers endeavored to build an addition onto its headquarters building in Danville. Formally named Hutchinson Hall, after founding member Galen O. Hutchinson, Dowser Hall became the regular meeting place of the mothership chapter of ASD in Danville and home to many dowsing presentations and workshops during the National Convention and local chapter events.
Expanding National Convention
Faced with the increasing popularity of our National Convention, ASD made the decision to move the annual event to the Lyndon State College campus in Lyndonville, just a few miles up the road.
