Eureka Springs Cemetery Listed on National Register of Historic Places

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Wednesday, June 13, 2018

The Eureka Springs Cemetery at Eureka Springs in Carroll County has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the country’s official list of historically significant properties.

The Eureka Springs Cemetery, located northwest of the junction of U.S. Highway 62 and County Road 205, contains burials dating to the 1880s.

“The rural cemetery, composed of monuments of artistic and cultural significance within a designed landscape, is set against the natural beauty of the Ozark mountains,” according to the National Register nomination. “Many of the monuments can be attributed to local and regional sculptors and stonemasons. The cemetery contains excellent examples of funerary art, monument and statuary designed during the period of significance, ranging from modest marble grave markers to elaborate marble obelisks and limestone monuments. The extant resources represent changing attitudes toward death and burial practices through the period of significance. The organization and layout of the site, as well as tombstone decoration, symbolism and inscriptions provide documentation of the traditions and beliefs important to the citizens of Eureka Springs, including members of fraternal organizations and various religious denominations.”
