The living history tours feature live actors in period costumes portraying some early citizens of Eureka Springs who helped to shape the myths and history of the town.

A few of the characters portrayed this year will be, Sam Leath, Beulah Mullins, and Ora Obenshain.   Make sure and save the date to find out more about their lives, and the experiences they had in Eureka Springs.

Guided walking tours begin at 5:30 p.m. and leave every twenty minutes, the last at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under. They may be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce, any Cornerstone Bank location, the museum downtown at 95 S Main Street, or at the parking lot of the Victoria Inn the day of the performance.img_4277
