Those who ran escaped, simply enough, they wanted normal lives and they sought them as far away as they could manage.
Those who stayed also wanted normal lives, having been raised in a culture of constant oppression, but only knew this place.
It became a sort of tourist destination where people could learn about the horrors under which they lived, and the place was founded. They live somewhat normally, though, and they are the ones who run the tours, the restaurant, etc.
They do this to let people know what happened, so that it can be known how it was allowed to happen, and in the hopes that it won't happen again.
They also do this so that people might not vilify them as people who were a part of the cult, since there was little choice, and they want to be seen as normal people who were in a horrible position, rather than horrible people.
