CANAVERAL HISTORICAL SITES


SEMINOLE REST

Seminole Rest is the site of two late-1800s homes that were built on top of a group of Timucuan Indian shell middens—refuse piles made of discarded shells from seafood meals—that were created between 770-1100 AD. Over hundreds of years the middens grew into sizable hills. Most were destroyed during modern times when leveled and used as landfill, but the private owners of Seminole Rest saved these middens from a similar fate.
