Discover the beauty of Eureka Springs, a peaceful getaway in the heart of the Ozarks. As was once rumored by native tribes, there truly is magic in this little village in the heart of the mountains. Eureka Springs is served by US Highway 62 and State Highway 23.
The eventual foundation of Eureka Springs began as a legend of a "Medicine Spring" that was passed among the region's native tribes. In the late 1800s, word spread to the cities about the marvels of the cool, healing waters of this spring. A few brave people packed everything they owned and headed for our area in search of magical rejuvenation. They discovered a tiny town sprouting to life amidst tall trees and sparkling water flowing from hundreds of surrounding springs. The first health-seekers to arrive are said to have exclaimed, "Eureka! I have found it," and many dedicated themselves to bringing more settlers to share in the "magic".
