Eureka Springs ,St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church

Q What is unique about the church?
A It was mentioned in Ripley's "Believe It or Not" column because the church is entered through the bell tower. The walk from the bell tower has the 14 Stations of the Cross in Italian marble along the right hand side. The chapel was designed with St. Sophia's Church in Istanbul, Turkey in mind.

Q Did they bring everything over from the old church on Fairmont St.?
A No. They moved only a few statues and the old altar. Several things have been donated as memorial gifts however. One was the large chandelier with 7511 crystals and 19 interior lights that hangs from the center of the dome.
