Eureka Springs Historic Treasures
The town buildings are mostly from late 1800's to early 1900's. Nothing seems to be new here, and that is hard to say in today's fast food and slap up construction. Much is built on the rock, or carved into the sides and that takes a lot of chipping. Fires had not really effected the town much in last 80+ years, unlike other century old towns. Brick was the reason after 2-3 early fires that destroyed some structures. Walk down Springs Street and visit the many historic homes and shope. Many preserved and well maintained.
