Eureka Springs - Blue Spring Heritage Center

1537 County Road 210
479-253-9244

Blue Spring captures the rich history of the Ozark region, from American Indian journeys and early settler life to prehistoric civilization.There is evidence of an Old Mill powered by the spring and other remnants of community centered on the water. With exquisite arrays of plants and flowers, this site has served as a tourist attraction since 1948.

In 1993, 33 acres were transformed into the Eureka Springs Gardens. And in, 2003, the rich history of the land was blended with the beauty of the Gardens to become the Blue Spring Heritage Center. Artifacts, old photos, a new historic film spanning the significance of the Blue Spring site, and the walkways through the natural world all await visitors.

Blue Spring Heritage is a lovely and interesting place to visit. There are many beautiful plants and flowers. If you enjoy learning about history, I recommend visiting this place for its historical significance. In mid-May, some of the flowers had faded. Perhaps March or April is a better time to visit for viewing flowers.

Beautiful place. The gardens were just being planted so it will be even better in a month. We enjoyed walking the grounds.

I've previously left a review after I visited this past September but for some reason several of my reviews are no longer showing up...Anyway...I've been to this beautiful place several times over the years. As I get older I have realized the steep steps are becoming more of a challenge, so be prepared for quite a hike to get in and out. Also, we went in mid. September and the heat and humidity was harsh. Regardless, it's a beautiful place and the history there is interesting and very much worth the visit. If you do visit and need to cool off, there is a historical video to watch inside a building next to the entrance that is climate controlled and see it for free that tells you a LOT about the history of the place as well. The entrance fee is reasonable at $9.00 and the gift shop has lots of great items to browse through. Parking was free. I'm sure the next time I visit Eureka Springs I'll take my family and tour it again. Definitely recommend.
