Living in Estero Florida
Estero Florida is a small village in Lee County and home to about 35,000 residents. It's part of the larger Cape Coral-Fort Myers Metro area.

This drew many of his followers to purchase a 320-acre tract of land way back in 1894. This small community prospered enough to create their own political party called the Progressive Liberty Party. They incorporated the town as Estero in 1904 but after the death of their leader in 1908, the following diminished but a foundation remains today as a remnant of past history and is known as the College of Life Foundation, which actually contributes to local playhouses and events today. The original tract of land is now known as the Koreshan State Historic Site and the 'village' of Estero was reincorporated in 2014.
