St. Elizabeth's Church, Eureka Springs Arkansas

This is one of the best little churches in the US. It is one of the more ornate beauty and color. It started in 1909, and was in disrepair after around 1950's until revival. Richard Kerens, a wealthy person of railroad base built it to memorialize his mother. The chandelier has 7511 crystal pieces and 102 chains holding it. Renovated in 1960's, the stained glass windows are new, but replicate an era of the past. It was to be a bit a a take off of Sophia in Turkey, but a lot of Hungary influence is here due to the locals being of that origin.
