Owner description: This newly restored house features the photos and artifacts from the old town of Eldora.
Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is an interesting exhibit of the house, a brief historical film, and pictures and artifacts of what the house and the surrounding area was like from the late 19th century until the last owners left in 1959. It is located inside the Canaveral National Seashore Park, so you need to have a pass or pay an admission fee to the park to be able to visit it.

Cape Canaveral National Seashore is a very interesting place. We usually go to Playalinda Beach on the south side of the park, which is very different. The north side is more historic.

Just a fun add on to my day trip to New Smyrna. JB's for lunch!! National Seashore for photo ops. I still say this is one of the most beautiful beaches in this country. To heck with Conde Naste . If you like shell picking this is a good beach for it. Lots of private areas for quiet family outings/picnics. Been here often and always have a great nature experience. This time watched red fish barrel down waves chasing teh bait fist. We all know there are tons of national parks in the good Ole US of A and this rates right up there. For the record I am not employed by the Parks and Rec people. Just know a good time, great bang for your buck.

We enjoy coming to Canaveral National Seashore during the summer months as it's our beloved choice for the beach, and have frequently visited the grounds of the Eldora State House and surrounding area during our visits. It's so peaceful to walk around and the impressive house has been beautiful restored. We have yet to catch a time when we can view the inside but hope we will be able to in the future. Also, if visit near the holidays, they have beautiful decorations up on the house and in the trees.

Canaveral Nat Seashore occupies the south end of the barrier island that is NSB's seashore. Wild and unspoiled, it reminds you of what FL looked like 100 yrs ago, The Eldorado State house is an historical artifact from a failed settlement there,and which gives you a sense of early settlers and their occupations. It is well run by the Nat Park Service. well wortha trip.
