Eureka Springs, Ar
Recently spent 3 days in Eureka Springs before spending the 4th of July in Kansas with family.
I can't tell you how many times we walked up and down the narrow streets of the Historic Downtown area and I only found a single survey marker. I'm aware that the streets of the town were raised and that for early years, the streets were nothing but mud. All that being said, I find it hard to believe that only one corner would be along the sidewalk, near the face of the buildings.
Thinking about it now, I guess it would be possible for the building face to be the right-of-way. Either way, it was a fun trip and the town hasn't changed much since my last visit in 1994.
Beautiful part of country. I use to take R&R in Eureka Springs at least once a year in the '80s. And Christmas use to be a really magic time there. I usually stayed at the Crescent Hotel. It was a beautiful old place. I remember they had a cat there for years that had two paws on one front leg. I can't remember his name but her use to hang out in the stairways. A lot of shops had entrances on street level but the back doors were 2 stories lower.
I don't think I ever thought of surveying while I was there... 😉
Is that photo from 1994?
