  1. I am delighted to see that interest in Estero and Koreshanity is alive and well.

  2. To whom it may concern:
    Just in this moment I found the comments on Hed Michel, a member of the Koreshan Unity in the seventies, wo came from Frankfurt/Germany to the States.
    Since I am doing some research work on the Frankfurt Jewish artist John Elsas (1851-1935), whom Hed Michel knew personally, I am very much interested to learn whether there exist pictures (aquarell and collage techniques) by John Elsas in the archives of the Koreshan Unity. Some years ago I already wrote to this Unity but never got an answer. I would be very grateful if you could help me. I know about her friends called Kramer in Frankfurt, and from them she got about 30 pictures painted by John Elsas.
    Sincerely yours

  3. Dear sir or madam,
    we are a german literary agency supporting authors and are currently working on the research concerning the German propagator of the hollow earth theory Peter Bender. In the archives of the Koreshan Unity, we found a few helpful links, and we would very much appreciate your help regarding some remaining questions. We would be glad if you could reply to us on short notice.

    Sincerely yours,
    Stefan Schöpper

  4. Hello, I’m a middle school teacher from Naples. After a visit to Koreshan, I spoke to my students about my visit. They are very interested in the history of the Unity.

    I’d like to know if you have anyone that could come to our school to talk to our 8th graders about the Koreshan people. Our school district will not pay for fieldtrips, so visiting is not possible.
