About This Collection: On February 21, 1979, the Eureka Springs Preservation Society was awarded a grant to conduct a comprehensive survey of all the structures within the Eureka Springs Historic District. At that time there were over 1,000 buildings in the district within city limits with only 1,700 permanent residents, making Eureka Springs one of the largest historical districts per capita. Photographers for this project included Robert "Butch" Berry, Joseph Dorn, J. Michael Kanoff, Lisa Bromstad Knapp, Ned Shank, and others. By 1980, all structures within the city limits had been surveyed and photographed. These records were digitized from 2013 to 2023 by Eureka Springs Historical Museum staff and have been uploaded here for historical property research purposes.
