So glad we took the time to explore Canaveral National Seashore. We were unable to tour this state house, as it was not open, but we sat in rockers on the front steps and enjoyed the peach of this historic spot. I was impressed that...More

The tour is self guided, literally! Follow the directions of the prompts along the path to get to the home on your phone, and a guide will provide the tour. Very informative and extra cool! We used the speaker phone so everyone in our tour...More

My understanding is the Eldora House is closed at the moment for repairs from damages during Hurricane Irma. The drive through a portion of Canaveral National Seashore to access the house is very pleasant. We see lots of wildlife especially when our visit is early...More

I love this area - one of the first homesteads in our country. A museum of sorts but small. You will have time to read everything. I do feel the verbiage there is politically correct. This is part of the Cape National Seashore.

I love learning about the people that came before us. The house has posters displayed with people and their roles in Eldora. Watch the video to learn about the history of area.

Beautiful building with a lot of historical information and pictures about the area. The area surrounding the Eldora State House is true old Florida, so it gives you the sense of what it was like when Eldora was a thriving settlement before it died out.
