The national park service has done a tremendous job in restoring and maintaining the piece of local history. The whole park is well worth the time, and minimal entrance fee, stop in and enjoy.

We stopped here while on our way to the Indian mounds. The caretaker was very entertaining and explained a lot of the history behind this property. There is a lot to read about here and it was worth taking the time to stop here. It is only a short walk down a tree covered lane to the house.

You can learn a great deal about the area's history, if you're so inclined. And a good place to get out of the heat during the summer. You can watch a short film in the viewing room. Free with your fee to enter the beach area.

Enjoyed the short walk through the shaded forest (take bug spray!). The history of the house and community are very interesting and the view of the lagoon is lovely!

This house is on the national seashore and gives a nice glimpse into old Florida. There is also a pier and people were fishing and we met some kayakers. The house has old photos and talks about the area, both natural and historical. A volunteer was on duty to answer questions.

But beautiful sunsets! Currently the hours are only on Fri/Sat/Sun. But the view of the sunset from the rocking chairs on the porch was with it!
