Visit the industrial area to check out the 1929 Fairbanks-Morse engine and the machine shop. The Koreshans were known not only for their unique belief system but also for their innovative use of electricity. They not only provided electricity for the residents of the settlement but also for their neighbors in the area.

Walk along the bamboo trails that the Koreshans created for the aesthetic purposes. The bamboo is not a native plant of Florida but has been preserved as a part of this area’s unique history.

Throughout the tour, learn about the Koreshan belief system, how they came to be and eventually their dissolution. This tour is a fun-filled educational experience that serves to capture a significant part of the area’s history.
