Description

Nestled within the beautiful hills of the Ozarks, there is an Arkansas town unlike any other. Eureka Springs has a lively and colorful past, peppered by one-of-a-kind characters drawn to the town for its soothing waters. And while Eureka Springs is known today as one of the most well-preserved towns in the nation, some of its most interesting history hides in plain sight. Join local author Joyce Zeller as she uncovers the remarkable and often forgotten history of this natural wonder of the Ozarks. With tales of the 1922 bank robbery, the residency of notorious prohibitionist Carry A. Nation and how a beloved cat named Morris became "general manager" at the historic Crescent Hotel, this is a side of the Eureka Springs story that won't be found anywhere else.
