General Information:

The House of David began in 1903 by Benjamin Purnell, who claimed to be prophet of God. Thousands relocated to Benton Harbor, Michigan to follow Purnell’s “House of David” and live in the commune that promised Heaven on Earth. Members abstained from all vices, and all worldly goods were shared among the community.

Another great resource about the House of David and the park is Clare Adkin Jr. who wrote the book titled, "Brother Benjamin - A History of the Israelite House of David." It was published in 1990 by the Andrews University Press out of Berrien Springs. It is an excellent resource and I'm fortunate to have met Clare and have an autographed copy of the book.
