Looking for information about the people and places of Eureka Springs?

Each city has its own story to tell and we are very proud of ours. The Eureka Springs Historical Museum has a large collection of archival documents and photos on the history of this wonderful “City of Distinction” and its residents. When you learn about the city in which your ancestors lived, you take a big step towards understanding what their life was like and the people, places, and events that impacted the course of their own personal history.

Our local historians take great pride in helping you make amazing discoveries at reasonable rates.
