Koreshan State Historic Site

In 1894 Cyrus Reed Teed, a surgeon in the Civil War, brought his  followers to Estero to build New Jerusalem for his faith, Koreshanity.   The colony, known as the Koreshan Unity, believed that the entire  universe existed within a giant, hollow sphere.  Today, visitors can  fish, picnic, boat, and hike where Teed´s visionaries once carried out  survey experiments to prove the horizon on the beaches of Lee County  curves upward.   A boat ramp and canoe rentals are available.  Visitors  can take a self-guided or ranger-guided tour. For overnight stays, the  park has a full-facility campground.
