The European Americans were another culture to consider the springs to have healing powers. After the Europeans arrived, they described the waters of the springs as having magical powers. Within a short time in the late nineteenth century, Eureka Springs was transformed into a flourishing city, spa, and tourist destination. Dr. Alvah Jackson was credited in American history with locating the spring and in 1856, claimed that the waters of Basin Spring had cured his eye ailments. Dr. Jackson established a hospital in a local cave during the Civil War and used the waters from Basin Spring to treat his patients. After the war, Jackson marketed the spring waters as "Dr. Jackson's Eye Water." The Ozarka Water Company was later formed in Eureka Springs in 1905.

  • What a nice place to listen to some Blue Grass bands play. Had a great time listening to the various artist. Well worth the visit to this part of state.
  • Beautiful park with wonderful street performers and artists during the day!!!! I got a lovely sand art piece for a very good price! If you get there and the "sand man" is there I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
