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

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.
