ES | Evolution


Readers far and wide have found this blog from all over the country and so this particular post is most exciting to me, as we - the beautiful community of Eureka Springs - announce some wonderful new developments on the horizon.

Basin Park Hotel

The Basin is an anchor in downtown Eureka Springs and has been since it was built in 1881 ; after all it is our Basin Spring where it all began. It is this spring that was first knows as Indian Healing Spring and it was the waters that flowed from here that caused a population surge in Eureka Springs as many flocked here to reside and to be healed.

The Basin Park Hotel, as old as it is, is cherished so it is with much pride that we announce these refurbishment plans. In this video, Jack Moyer, the General Manager of the Basin Park Hotel, explains what is about to happen in this exciting remodel.
