Koreshan State Historic Site
In 1894, Cyrus Teed founded a self-sufficient utopian religious community along the banks of the Estero River. The beliefs included equal rights for women and that the sun revolved inside the earth. Today the site is a park with well-preserved buildings, including the art hall and the founder's house. Most buildings are wheelchair accessible. You can also view the plants introduced to the area by the Koreshans and Mound Key, an island of shells by the Caloosa Indians. Admission is USD3.25 per vehicle. There is also a campground, picnic area, hiking and canoeing. This place is open daily from 8 PM.
I happened upon this site and being a religious history buff, loved finding the 1900 utopian religious commune. The standing buildings have been restored and knowledgeable park guides eagerly answering my questions and shared additional information about the Koreshans. Earth Day was also going on at the site, which added another sweet flavor. Gorgeous grounds.
