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.
