10th Annual “Voices from Eureka’s Silent City”
The Eureka Springs Historical Museum will host its 10th annual “Voices from Eureka’s Silent City” cemetery walking tours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 18th, 19th and 20th, and then again on Friday and Saturday on October 26th and 27th.
This year, you will hear personal recollections of not only some of the local soldiers who fought in the war, but also how the war and other historical events of those years affected all Americans, but particularly life in Eureka Springs, and the surrounding areas.
You will meet an “eager volunteer” who was a telegraph worker at home, and used his skills to help the effort in France, a female reporter who reads letters from a hometown boy serving in France, who while sitting in the trenches, describes what he is seeing, and his mindset. You will also meet a woman who describes her view of the war years from her perspective, as a suffragette.
Guided walking tours begin at 5:30pm, and leave every 20 minutes, with the last tour ending at 8:30pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, and $5 for children 12 and under. Tickets may be purchase at the Eureka Springs Historical Museum, located at 95 S. Main Street, any Cornerstone Bank Location, in Eureka Springs, Berryville, Huntsville, and the Holiday Island Branch. Also, at the newly relocated Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce, located at the Eureka Springs Community Center. There are no reserved tickets, and tickets can also be purchased at the former Victoria Inn parking lot, located at 4052 E. Van Buren.
The event is a fundraising event for the Eureka Springs Historical Museum, and sponsored by Cornerstone Bank, Local Flavor Café, Aquarius Taqueria, and the City Advertising and Promotion Commission.
