This state park and museum is said to be haunted by the ghost of Cyrus Teed and his followers, who are waiting for their leader to resurrect. The Chicago doctor changed his name in 1869 to Koresh and developed a new religion in which he was the Messiah. Teed brought his followers to this location in 1894 and built a commune, the Koreshan Unity. Teed died in 1908, and his followers waited for him to resurrect. After 3 weeks of waiting and no sign of resurrection, the health department forced them to get rid of the body. It was placed in a mausoleum on the beach, but washed out to sea during a hurricane years later. The last Koreshan died in 1982, and many believe their spirits are still here watching over their land. Shadowy people have been seen before vanishing on the trails, unexplained voices have been heard in the buildings and floating orbs of light have been seen.
