Nice video and good historical information. It is on the waterway, so we found a sunny spot and ate our packed lunch. NO CROWDS

Walking around the area was taking a trip back in time. Very pristine and comfortable and a nice way to spend part of a day. Very attentive staff and a short feature gives you a glimpse into the area's history.

I know what I say will be heavily biased because I'm a six year volunteer at Canaveral choosing Eldora State House as my favorite place to work. The house, open from Tuesday through Sunday (if volunteers show up) from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. is a jewel of written and photographic information telling you of its varied 130+ years of... More

Cool, old house! I really loved the wrap around porch! What I really wanted was to hit the beach. You can smell the ocean from there!

The Canaveral Seashore Park is famous for it's beautiful beaches and no crowds around. Careful with the kids though some areas have nude bathing. The Eldora House is safe for the whole family and even Grandmother will love it. Enjoy FloridaPhil

Went to the Canaveral National Seashore where this house is. Open limited hours. Ranger there for a meeting, let us in before the house was actually open to the public. Interesting for what it represents, only building of it's kind left. Loved sitting the porch in a rocker.

We visited this wonderful house on the shore of our kayaking adventure from New Smyrna. There are several trails to follow, picnic tables and comfortable chairs on the porch to take a break from the long paddle. we enjoyed a picnic with some friends as well as a tour of the house. A great way to split up the trip.... More

My family and I very much enjoyed our trip to the Eldora State House! The house and grounds are beautiful! Learning how individuals lived and worked during that period was fascinating! The staff was so friendly and very knowledgeable! Relaxing on the porch of the Eldora House in the rocking chairs, feeling the cool breeze off the water is in... More
