Estero is a village in Lee County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 census, the CDP was 18,176. It is the home of Germain Arena, which hosts the home games for the Florida Everblades ECHL ice hockey team.
Estero was established and incorporated by the followers of Cyrus Teed, who proposed a theory that we live on the inside of the Earth’s outer skin, and that celestial bodies are all contained inside the hollow Earth. This theory, which he called Koreshan Unity, drew followers to purchase and occupy a 320-acre (1.3 km2) tract in 1894. They were business-oriented and lived communally, prospering enough to found its own political party (“The Progressive Liberty Party”) and incorporate the town on September 1, 1904 as Estero.
