Koreshan State Historic Site
3800 Corkscrew Rd, Estero, FL 33928, USA
Koreshan State Historic SiteVisitors to Southwest Florida have their choice of fantastic beaches, restaurants, and attractions, but for a fascinating glimpse into some of the area’s more unique history, don't miss the Koreshan State Historic Site in Estero, just north of Naples. An eccentric physician turned religious leader, the charismatic Cyrus Teed founded the site more than 100 years ago, turning it into a home for his Hollow Earth followers. Eventually, it was incorporated and became the town of Estero. Take a docent tour to learn about the history, or stroll the grounds and hiking trails on your own. It’s a bizarre place, to be sure, but it offers an interesting look into the intrepid spirit and alternative beliefs of the Koreshan people.
