Eureka Springs,Flat Iron Building.

Known as the "little Switzerland of the Ozarks," historic Eureka Springs is a quaint, Victorian styled village of narrow, winding streets, lovely Victorian architecture, and stunning views of Ozarks scenery. Old world, European charms, and fun attractions combine to make this 19th century health resort a perfect getaway for couples, friends, or even families.Flat Iron Building is the third to occupy this prominent address in downtown Eureka Springs. My favorite building in town is the Flat Iron Building.
The first two were consumed by fire during the Victorian age. Apparently the bad luck attending earlier constructions dissuaded a third try until the 1980s. Probably the most photographed building in town and by far the most memorable, this handsome but short hotel is easily recognized as a neat copy of its namesake in Manhattan.

Directions: directly across from the Basin Park Hotel where Spring Street begins to climb
