The Koreshans were a religious group from Chicago who believed we lived on the inside of the Earth and were actively seeking an alternative lifestyle free of what they called competitiveness. All land would be owned by the community and they sought to do away with the exchange of money.
The land the Koreshans settled is now Koreshan State Park, which includes eleven historic structures that date from 1882 to 1920.
Today, visitors can camp, fish, picnic, boat, and hike in a 200-acre state park where Teed’s visionaries once lived and created their own utopia. A boat ramp and canoe/kayak rentals are available. Visitors can take self-guided tours of the settlement. For overnight stays, the park has a full-facility campground. Click here to learn more about Koreshan State Park.Downloadable park map.
