The Eureka Springs Historical Museum will host its 7th annual “Voices from Eureka's Silent City” cemetery walking tours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 15th, 16th, and 17th. Then again on Friday and Saturday, October 30th and 31st. The living history tours feature live actors in period costumes portraying early citizens of Eureka Springs.
This year, actors and guides will be presenting compelling stories of some of Eureka's former leaders in service and philanthropy who now reside in the Silent City, the Eureka Springs City Cemetery: A WWI Army Colonel, a socialite, a prominent lawyer/mayor, a descendant of a Native American Chief, and an early proponent of baseball, among others. (More details will be forthcoming.)
Guided walking tours begin at 5:30 pm and leave every twenty minutes, the last at 8:30 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under. They may be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce, any Cornerstone Bank location, or the museum downtown at 95 S Main St. Tickets may also be purchased at the parking site.
There is no parking at the cemetery, but free parking and shuttle service will be provided at the former Victoria Inn parking lot located on Hwy. 62 East. See our website for a map at: www.eurekaspringshistoricalmuseum.org
