What a fun little town we are in tonight and tomorrow night. We arrived in Eureka Springs and had lunch before we took a ride on the tour bus with a narrator telling us the history of this unique little place. There is only one industry here....tourism. The town is built in several hollows or valleys and up the steep mountain sides and connected by narrow streets that curve around and climb up the mountain and plunge down the mountain. Fun in September......I don't know about January or February after an ice storm!
Eureka Springs wasn't established as a town until after the Civil War. The homes are all in either the cottage style or the painted lady style. And I took a few (few?) pictures of them to share with you.
I love old houses, so today was a lot of fun for me. I also love churches, so a little trip we took this afternoon was also fun. We drove just a few miles west of here to Thorn Crown Chapel.
