Several people have mentioned taking a tour of the Koreshan Unity in Estero before we plan a club outing in the fall which would include tour, hike and lunch. I hope we will qualify for an educational tour and get a break on entry fees at that time.
Presently, docent tours are only Saturday and Sunday at 10 am. I would like to go to Koreshan this coming Saturday (before it gets any hotter!) after the club Greenway walk. The tour begins at 10 am and costs $2. Park entry fee is $5 per car or $4 with single person.
Anyone interested is welcome to join us.
A recently published book documents the history of the Koreshans, “The Allure of Immortality” by Lyn Millner, an associate professor at FGCU. It is well written and documented, and fascinating to learn about this cult that thrived here in the late 1800’s.
Call me (239-571-2770) or meet us there. See you Saturday.
