History of Estero, Florida

Quietly nestled in between Fort Myers and Naples, lies the small village of Estero. The heart of Estero is the Estero River, which has helped transform this area into a charming village with a growing community; the River pours into the Estero Bay.  Estero means “estuary” in Spanish, and an estuary is where the river meets the sea. As a village surrounded by water, it is truly a beautiful place to visit or live. This small village was established by the follower of Cyrus Teed, the Koreshan Unity, who believed that celestial bodies are all contained inside the Earth. They purchased land in 1894 to live. These followers were business oriented and incorporated the town in 1904, which we now know as the village of Estero. To this day, people visit the Koreshan State Historic Site to learn about this village’s beginnings.

Estero is a great location to head out on a fishing charter as it’s so close to the Gulf and the Ten Thousand Islands. On an Estero fishing charter, people can enjoy the beautiful sights of the plants and wildlife as they sail on by. The village has no shortage of breathtaking views.
