The Koreshans brought culture and industry to Southwest Florida. They owned and operated nearly thirty businesses including a machine shop, general store, bakery, post office and school.
For more than a quarter century, Koreshan State Park and Friends of Koreshan have offered guests a view of the life and times of Dr. Cyrus Teed, their founder, and the Koreshans with the theatrical production, Ghost Walk. In each one-hour performance, volunteers in period costumes guide you through a historical journey along the candlelit shell paths of the Historic Unity Settlement.
Notable Koreshan figures reenacted will include Gustav Damkohler whose riverfront land provided the Koreshans a new home, Professor Eleanor Castle, one of the Seven Sisters of the Planetary Court who managed the Koreshan Unity, Victoria Gratia, the “Motherhood Empress of the Imperial Dominion of Koreshanity” and of course, the Koreshan Unity’s founder and famous leader, Dr. Cyrus Teed.
You will stroll past restored buildings from a bygone era as re-enactors perform scenes from their lives after the Koreshans settled in Southwest Florida.
