Israelite House of David - Eden Springs Resort
"We had large crowds in the park so we had to have music most all the time.
Soon the different cities near here were engaging our band to play in parades,
fairgrounds, Fourth of July celebrations, etc." Estelle Hornbeck memoirs
The Eden Springs Resort was an in-house operation all the way. House of David members grew, processed, prepared and served the food sold to park visitors. Colonist made the souvenirs sold in the shops and built the steam trains that carried guests around the park. An army of member gardeners, florists, waiters, mechanics, salespersons, ticket sellers and many other workers ran and maintained Eden Springs Park like the Garden of Eden.
