The Eureka Springs underground Tour, is not just an another attraction, but in here in Eurkea Springs a place in which history was well recorded. Eureka Springs resident Carrie Amelia Moore Nation
(November 25, 1846 - June 9, 1911) was a member of the temperance movement, which opposed alcohol in pre-Prohibition America. She is particularly noteworthy for promoting her viewpoint through vandalism. On many occasions Nation would enter an alcohol-serving establishment and attack the bar with a hatchet.
Nation was a large woman, almost 6 feet (180 cm) tall and weighing 175 pounds (79 kg) and of a somewhat stern countenance. She described herself as "a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn't like," and claimed a divine ordination to promote temperance by smashing up bars.
When planning your Eureka Springs vacation give the Angel at Rose Hall a call,your Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast and your Eureka Springs Weddings Chapel, the best place for Eureka Springs Lodging and Eureka Springs wedding.
Later life, death, and legacy
Nation's anti-alcohol activities became widely known, with the slogan "All Nations Welcome But Carrie" becoming a bar-room staple. Nation, a proud woman more given to sermonizing than entertaining landed in the Ozarks for her final sermons.
