ORGANIZATION: Koreshan State Park/Florida Park Service

Image_202406060915

For 30 years, Koreshan State Park has been running an event called Ghost Walk. It is a theatrical performace of the lives and times of the pioneers who settled in Estero in 1894. Over time we have incorporated demonstrations such as blacksmithing, cast iron cooking, and turn of the century machines used to power and provide for the Koreshans and the surrounding community. This is just one event for which we are looking to find volunteers and leaders. Come join our team to learn and discover what the park has to offer and work with park staff to plan fitting events and activities that the community would enjoy and are fitting to the park service mission.

Mission Statement

to provide resource-based recreation while preserving, interpreting and restoring natural and cultural resources. The objective in park planning is to achieve an equitable balance between preserving natural resources and providing public access for outdoor recreation.

Description

Koreshan State Park offers a window into the lives of a unique and eccentric pioneer group that made its home under towering oaks on the banks of the Estero River.

In 1893, the Koreshans, a religious sect founded by Dr. Cyrus R. Teed, moved here and built a settlement based on a commitment to communal living and a belief that the universe existed on the inside of the Earth. Living celibate lives, the enterprising Koreshans established a farm, nursery and botanical gardens.

The park is home to 11 immaculately restored and nationally registered historic buildings erected by the Koreshans between the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

A quiet and peaceful refuge amid busy Fort Myers, the park's interpretative and natural resources provide great opportunities to learn and to enjoy nature.

At our park we utilize volunteers to assist with maintenance, events, visitor services, and interpreting the park and its history. There is likely something for each person that can fit into a variety of schedules.
