Historic Downtown Eureka Springs

Banner for Downtown Eureka SpringsDowntown Eureka Springs Historic District

downtown is north of Main Street
along Spring Street

The entire downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Blocks of well-preserved Victorian buildings ranging from multistory brick-and-limestone landmarks to wood-trimmed cottages house an impressive array of art and crafts galleries, specialty shops, restaurants and lodgings. Stone walkways, tree-lined pathways, architectural flourishes, pocket parks, fountains and sculpture, trolleys and horsedrawn carriages add to the charm.

A remarkable system of trails connects the Crescent Hotel and downtown Eureka Springs. Wooded dirt paths give the impression of being in a wilderness, though you're actually right in the heart of town.
