Canaveral National Seashore is located on a barrier island off the east coast of Florida that features unspoiled beaches and over 100 middens—heaps of shells, broken pottery, and discarded arrowheads left by the Timucuan Indians who were the area's first known inhabitants. The park also features remnants of a deserted Florida town settled by land speculators who settled on Mosquito Lagoon after the Civil War.
