By The National Trust For Historic Preservation

 NTHP Logo

 Preservationists from across the state recently convened here at the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa for a Certified Local Government (CLG) training seminar.  The two-day event opened the first night with a welcome reception sponsored by the host hotel.  During that reception a few special announcements and presentations were made including recognition of one local preservationist by the national organization that is specifically dedicated to the preservation of historic buildings and neighborhoods, the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP). 

Jack Moyer, vice-president and general manager of the Crescent, read a framed letter from Stephanie Meeks, president and CEO of NTHP that prais20131107_190722ed Dee Bright of Eureka Springs for her dedication to preservation.  Bright serves as chairperson of the Eureka Springs Historic District Commission (HDC), president of the Eureka Springs Preservation Society, and treasurer of the local organization of the NTHP’s Main Street program, which is supported locally by the Eureka Springs Downtown Network (ESDN).

In the letter Meeks wrote, “Through her service she (Dee Bright) has shown exceptional commitment to Eureka Springs and the preservation movement.  Dee, your colleagues at the National Trust thank you, and I know the citizens of Eureka Springs and the entire community of preservationists in Arkansas join us in saying that your efforts have made a significant difference in ‘Protecting The Irreplaceable’ for many future generations to come.”

The evening also featured an official city welcome to the nearly 75 attendees by Mike Bishop, president of the Greater Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce; an official20131107_185550 state welcome from Missy McSwain, program director for the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program (AHPP); and the introduction of a Preservation Partners program, conceived by Moyer that and is now in beta testing, that will make recognized preservation volunteers of the various preservation organizations across the state eligible for deep discounts at both the Crescent and its local sister hotel, the 1905 Basin Park Hotel.

“I have presented this program for consideration to both NTHP and Historic Hotels of America,” explained Moyer.  “If it works here, they may roll it out nationally enabling designated preservation volunteers to stay at any HHA property across the country at an attractive discount.”

The reception was the opening event for the state CLG seminar, a training event coordinated locally by Glenna Booth, the Eureka Springs’ Economic Director.  Workshops were led by Pratt Cassity, director of the Center for Community Design and Preservation in the College of Environment and Design at the University of Georgia.

HISTORIC HOTEL OF AMERICA CELEBRATES THE GRAND RE-OPENING OF ITS MORGUE

The Grand Re-Opening of the MORGUEMorgue_WalkInCooler_1886CrescentHotel&Spa_7x10

Throughout the decades, members of Historic Hotels of America have celebrated re-openings of such hotel facilities as their restaurant, lounge, spa, etc., but only one HHA member has ever made plans to re-open their “morgue”.  Now, just in time for Halloween, the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa, located in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, will celebrate the re-opening of its “morgue” throughout the month of October.

“Our morgue is one of those historic infamies that has made us famous in the world of the paranormal and those interested in that world,” said Bill Ott, the hotel’s director of marketing and communications.  “It wasn’t part of the original business plan of the Eureka Springs Improvement Company who built this mountaintop spa resort more than 125 years ago, it just turned out that way.”

The history of the Crescent includes years when it was something other than a hotel.  For example, from 1908 to 1934 the hotel -in the non-summer months- was used as The Crescent College & Conservatory for Young Women.  The depression caused the college and the hotel to close its doors but in 1934.  However, thanks to “the man from Muscatine”, the Crescent re-swung her doors open to much fanfare in 1937.

smallIn July of 1937, an established nemesis of the American Medical Association, Norman Baker of Muscatine Iowa, began his boldest undertaking of his greedy, imaginative career: The Baker Cancer Curing Hospital, “Where Sick Folks Get Well”, located in a familiar five-story limestone structure that sat high in The Ozark Mountains above a community known the world over for its miraculous stories of healing.  No longer did guests come to this building for vacation lodging.  Instead, for the next three years, it would be patients who would come to this one-time resort for a “promised” cure from their debilitating cancer only to find pain, suffering, loss of life savings, and often loss of life.  These were the unkept promises of a charlatan in saint’s clothing.

“It is the sad years and sad tales of the Baker Hospital that are the genesis of the Crescent Hotel’s morgue,” Ott explained.  “It was in the morgue where Baker used his large walk-in Morgue_Baker'sAutopsyTable_1886CrescentHotel&Spa_10x7cooler to store cadavers and body parts, and his autopsy table more for studying the cancers removed from patients in an effort to discover ‘what went wrong’ when a patient died hoping to stumble upon a cure.  Both of these gruesome artifacts remain intact as do the stories -and some would say the patients- that surround them.”

From the time of Baker’s arrest in late 1939 on charges of mail fraud followed by his conviction in January 1940, the Crescent’s morgue would sit dormant being used only for some storage by the parade of hotel owners and operators from 1946 to 1997.  A Crescent Hotel renaissance began 1997 when Marty and Elise Roenigk purchased the property.  They invested the time, love and dollars to return “The Grand Ol’ Lady of The Ozarks” to her nineteenth century grandeur.

“Prior to the Roenigks’ purchase, hotel owners would often hear reports of paranormal activity but put the kibosh on the public repeating of these stories thinking it would hurt occupancy.  The Roenigks took the attitude that if ghosts were a part of the history of this historic hotel, why shouldn’t those stories be told,” Ott noted, “and the Crescent Hotel Ghost Tours were born.”

Morgue_Entranceway_MiniTheater_1886CrescentHotel&Spa_10x7“The ghost tours, which have grown exponentially over the past 16 years thanks to exposure on national television programs and in national publications, have always included the morgue,” continued Jack Moyer, hotel’s general manager since 1997, “but until recently that space has had a dual purpose: maintenance area by day, eerie morgue by night.  But now, maintenance has been removed and the morgue readied for thrilling new discoveries by curious ghost tour patrons.”

The enhancement of the focal point of “America’s most haunted hotel” includes placards and photos -dramatically illuminated- telling the Morgue_Locker_FullBodyApparitionSite_TAPS_1886CrescentHotel&Spa_7x10Baker story; inclusion of a wheelchair from the Baker Hospital as well as other medical artifacts from that era; the addition of a micro-theatre; and easier access to the walk-in cooler, autopsy table and the locker made famous by The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) in a Syfy Network “Ghost Hunters” feature episode.  For it was in front of the “2” emblazoned locker that TAPS captured a full-bodied apparition on their thermal imaging camera, something they called “the holy grail of ghost hunting”.

“With the grand re-opening of our ‘morgue’,” Moyer concluded, “our guests and ghost tour patrons will have a brand-new experience in a grand ol’ Historic Hotel of America.”

Eurekapalooza September 28th

Eurekapalooza

September’s 4th Annual Eurekapalooza Outdoor Festival, to be held on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Lake Leatherwood City Park in Eureka Springs. The all-ages music and family-fun festival has expanded this year with more live entertainment and more fun activities for children and families. The Kid Zone will
be “bouncy fun” with all sorts of games, slides, activities and art-making opportunities, said organizer Karen FitzPatrick. Admission to Eurekapalooza is a suggested
$1 per person donation at the gate. 513

The music lineup includes Colorado folk-rockers Sarah & The Meanies; National Park Radio; Louisiana-based Cajun/ reggae/rock band Stiff Necked Fools; Eureka-based Americana group Dime Trip; heavy metal rockers Iron Swine of Eureka; teen pop group Signs of Warning from Oklahoma; Berryville-based bluegrass standouts The Monastery Dogs; and Eureka-based alt-rock/pop/Americana act SxRex. Following are previews of the major performing acts scheduled for this year’s festival.

Eurekapalooza is a fundraiser for Clear Spring School, an independent school in Eureka Springs that provides a handson education to pre-primary through 12th
grades in Northwest Arkansas. For more information about the school, visit www. ClearSpringSchool.org.

SARAH & THE MEANIES
Have you heard of Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado? Well, so has Denver-based indie-folk-rock band Sarah & The Meanies — they actually performed
there earlier this year. Sarah Angela, better known as “SA,” has grown from a singing baby to an indie-folk-rocker playing solo across the country to the leader of an explosive Americana standout group, Sarah & The Meanies. he band has been featured at Austin’s South By Southwest, The Underground Music Showcase, and many
major live music venues across the country. Hands off the ground and buried in a lifetime of musical obsession, Sarah has roots that run wide. The group’s songs
might reference the styles of Bonnie Raitt, Otis Redding, Citizen Cope, or Sia; but despite some of their influences, they’ve — and she’s — got their own unique sound. One
thing’s for sure, she sings bigger and louder than her 5-foot frame would have you assume. More so, the soul poured into every song is obvious with each note that she utters. The group has earned rave critical reviews all over the nation; Pacific Northwest Music Scene wrote: “Sarah Angela took the stage. Close your eyes and envision an angel singing sweet, but down and dirty, heartfelt lyrics. Open your eyes, and your guess was correct.”
NATIONAL PARK RADIO
National Park Radio is a newish, modern folk-rock band born and based in the natural beauty of the Ozark Mountains. An all-acoustic band featuring well-written original
songs and beautiful vocals, NPR has a unique sound that is easy to love. Their self-titled EP debut contains five songs inspired by the beauty of their native landscape
as well as the joys and trials of life and love. The lyrical poetry of lead singer and songwriter Stefan Szabo is a treasure not to be missed, and the melodies and vocal harmonies complete the package. National Park Radio is surely a band on the rise in the Arkansas music scene, and Eurekapalooza fans are certain to
enjoy their performance.
STIFF NECKED FOOLS
Stiff Necked Fools are a Cajun-flavored reggae band based in Shreveport, La. Dan Sanchez was an award-winning blues artist from Los Angeles who was looking to do something new. His search led him to Reggae music, which soon became his passion and led him to form this group. As the group began to pick up steam, the horn players
arrived. Ryan Viser (trumpet) and Stefan Poole (saxophones) were brought in to help give the band that big, full sound. From there, things began taking off.
Unfortunately, just as the group was starting to blossom, Sanchez fell ill to cancer and passed away in March 2010. Devastated but determined, the Fools worked to pick
up the pieces and keep on moving. Their persistence paid off. With more players added to the group and a new sound emerging, their weekly Reggae Thursdays jam at a local Shreveport venue exploded. With the newfound energy came creativity, and original songs started pouring out week after week.
Today, they are easily the hottest reggae/jamband in this part of the country. With the group opening up for bands such as Rebirth Brass Band, Cowboy Mouth, Bonerama, and many others, Stiff Necked Fools is making its mark on the music scene across the South, building a rising following among music lovers who enjoy groups such as Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, The Expendables, etc. “Our genre of music has been dubbed Bayou Reggae” says Viser. “We definitely have that sound that reggae is known for, but we’ve put a unique Louisiana-style twist on it that makes it really different.”  “You just never know what we’re gonna do. The amount of talent each member brings makes this band very versatile,” says vocalist and drummer John Hoffman. Sarah & The Meanies performed at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado earlier this year. National Park Radio is based in the Ozarks and has members from Harrison and Fayetteville. Stiff Necked Fools’s six members are based in Shreveport, La.

SXREX

Take some hard-rock drumming, blues-influenced bass lines and a heavy dose of Celtic and folk musical flavor — and a mandolin to boot — and what do you get?
A band from Eureka Springs, called SxRex, with one of the most unique and melodic folk-rock sounds you’ve heard in a while. SxRex — pronounced S-X-Rex — is a three-piece folk-rock group featuring soulful, on-the-mark lead vocals by personable and fun-to-watch frontman Josh Bower, who also plays mandolin and guitar, depending on the song. His brother, Chris Bower, a contributing songwriter, mans a mean bass guitar and contributes vocals as well. Youngest brother Nick drives the drum-kit and is a contributing songwriter. All three add their own flavor to the band’s overall sound and the development of the group’s scores of original tracks, which range in sound from straight-out rock to Celtic-flavored folk-rock and progressive-bluegrass tunes. The group is known for long, variety-filled sets that include
trippy instrumentals — think Ireland’s answer to Widespread Panic, plus psychedelics — and songs with musical themes covering a wide range of genres, including Celtic rock (a la Flogging Molly and the Pogues), modern blues-rock (a la The Black Keys), reggae (a la Bob Marley), and progressive jamgrass (a la Mumford and Sons or Trampled By Turtles). They even have a comically heart-felt country song about a dog. SxRex also covers a wide range of popular hits, including
tracks by Queens of the Stone Age, The Black Keys, The Misfits, Rage Against The Machine, Scissor Sisters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ween, among others. The group has performed at venues far and near, including around Arkansas, Missouri and Colorado.

Signs of Warning

Signs of Warning is comprised of three kids ages 12 to 15 who are all veterans of John Michael’s Music Rock Camp. With a combination of two girls and one boy, Signs of Warning brings a modern twist to classic rock ‘n’ roll. The band has been rehearsing twice per week since May 2010, perfecting their songs. Covers they perform include
crowd favorites KISS, Fleetwood Mac, Johnny Cash and Joan Jett. The band has performed at many Oklahoma events including for the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. This year was their first time to play at The Festival of the Arts in Broken Arrow. A big accomplishment was having their version of “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” added to the music rotation on the Payne Radio Group’s stations across Oklahoma. According to Mr. Payne, Signs of Warning is the only rock ‘n’ roll band to ever be requested
on his country radio stations. Band members include Trenton Dennis, 14, on guitar and vocals; Jordan Roberts, 12, on drums; and Dakota Roberts,
15, on bass and vocals. SxRex is comprised of three brothers. Signs of Warning includes three teens who are all veterans of John Michael’s Music Rock Camp in Oklahoma.

Eureka Springs Historical Museum Hosts Civil War Exhibit

Eureka Springs Historical Museum Hosts Civil War ExhibitE_S__Historical_Museum-1 in August
 

Fought in earnest: Civil War Arkansas, a traveling exhibit chronicling major historical events in Arkansas between 1861 and 1865, will be displayed at Eureka Springs Historical Museum on August 4-24 from 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM, M-S, and 11 AM – 3 PM Sunday.

Fought in earnest contains fifteen free-standing banners that showcase images from the Arkansas History Commission’s holdings. Original documents, photographs, maps, drawings, paintings and artifacts illustrate the story of the Civil War in Arkansas. These primary source materials offer a first-hand look at the lives of Confederate and Union soldiers, government officials and civilians from 1861 to 1865.

“We wanted to develop several types of materials to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War in Arkansas,” stated Dr. Lisa Speer, State Historian and the History Commission’s Director. She continued, “I am very pleased that Eureka Springs Historical Museum is sharing this intimate glimpse into Arkansas’s role in the Civil War with their visitors and community.”

Other Civil War materials developed by the Commission for the sesquicentennial include two books, Traveled through a fine country: The Journal of Captain Henry Brockman, and Documenting framingfox_2222_242351978Arkansas; The Civil War 1861-1865, the companion book to Fought in earnest. Online order forms for these publications are available here.

During its 107 year existence the State Archives has actively collected materials from this crucial era in our nation and our state. Diaries written by soldiers and citizens; letters to mothers,

fathers, wives, sweethearts, brothers, and sisters; military orders, newspaper accounts, photographs, broadsides, and even party invitations recount the day-to-day lives of people caught up in the most significant event in nineteenth century America. These publications and

exhibit use these primary source materials to tell the story of the Civil War from an Arkansas perspective. The variety of items represents the breadth of the Commission’s Civil War resources, while thousands more documents are available to researchers.

For more information about the exhibit at Eureka Springs Historical Museum, call 479-253-9417 or email info@eurekaspringshistoricalmuseum.org.  Members of the museum as always receive free admission.  While you are here check out the books in our gift shop relating to the Civil War.

Eureka Springs-A Creative Idea for the Girls!

When venturing to Eureka Springs with your girlfriends for a getaway or a bachelorette party, make sure to stop in to Crescent Moon Beads store.  The store has it all from beads, stones, wire, glass, and much more! Whether you are a beginner or have tackled the art of jewelry making you will not be let down after a visit.  A few of us from work decided to head down there and see what we could create.  Most of us had no clue what we had in mind but when you walk in and see all the options you have to work with,  you easily get inspired!

My eyes instantly went to this thick wire with bright colors and I decided this is the piece I want to wear in the Artrageous Parade in Downtown Eureka Springs.  The other ladies shopped around for awhile deciding what they wanted to create, in the end we all ended up making something a little different from each other.

The owner, Joanna Hanna, is amazing! Super kind, patient, and willing to help you work on anything.  Oh and her music selection is awesome!   Another bonus, if you know ahead of time how many girls you are bringing she will open up her shop in the evening just for your friends!   We got to enjoy an evening all together, sipping wine, and making fun jewelry for ourselves!  Check out more fun things to do and shopping in Downtown Eureka Springs.

The ladies picking out the stones and beads.

Love the various hues of colors.   The crazy wire wrap bracelet is a fun way to put a lot of different beads for one piece.

My headpiece I created to wear in the parade.

Joanna Hanna, The Owner!
