Estero was established and incorporated by followers of Dr. Cyrus Reed Teed. He proposed a theory called Koresham Unity which says that "we live on the inside of the Earth's outer skin, and that celestial bodies are all contained inside the hollow earth. In 1894, followers purchased and occupied a 320 acre parcel of land where they lived communally and prospered in business and politics. In 1904 the town of Estero was incorporated.
Though those days have long passed, the Koreshans' original tract is now owned by the State of Florida. The Koreshan State Historic Site is a popular place to visit.
