Quigley's Castle is a historic house museum and garden at 274 Quigley Castle Road, off Arkansas Highway 23 south of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and is one of the most unusual houses in northwestern Arkansas. The house was designed by Elise Quigley and built in 1943 by Albert Quigley and a neighbor, using lumber from the property. The exterior of the house is decorated with the collection of rocks Elise Quigley had accumulated since childhood. The house was specifically deisgned by Quigley to accommodate a two-story space for tropical plants. Over the years Elise Quigley's gardens expanded to take over much of the property. In 1950 the family began charging admission to tour the home, a practice that continues today.Add Quigley's Castle and other attractions to your Eureka Springs trip itinerary using our Eureka Springs trip planner .

Not exactly a castle but very unique. Interesting story with plenty to see. Wan hosting tour is the builders grand daughter. Entrance is only $7 and worth a visit. Narrow road, so be careful driving. Definitely worth the time when visiting Eureka Springs.
This was an amazing work of art done by a local woman well known for her geological expertise. Her grounds and home are still maintained by family. I enjoyed the tour!
