Koreshan State Park is pleased to announce its First Annual Women’s History Tours during March 2018. The utopian Settlement, founded by Dr. Cyrus Teed, was established in Estero, Florida in 1894 and lasted until its last member died in 1982. The community offered women an unprecedented voice in the leadership and management of the community during a pivotal period in American history–a storyline which will be the emphasis of multiple events held during the month of March.
The Women of Koreshan Living History Tours, March 22. Reserve your spot in for one of the special tours led by women in period costumes, with a visit to the Cast Iron Cafe where visitors can enjoy a sample of Koreshan cooking.
