Established in 1979, the Eureka Springs Preservation Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the natural and architectural beauty of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Profits from the annual Christmas Tour of Homes in December and their tea in April, as well as other fundraisers throughout the year, are used for many community projects to preserve and protect Eureka Springs’ cultural and historic treasures. The preservation of our legacies is an integral part of life in Eureka Springs. Now, when a building in the Historic District (much of Eureka Springs has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places) undergoes the painstaking process of restoration or renovation, it is done with an aim toward historical accuracy and harmony.
