Thorncrown Chapel, Eureka Springs

4.6
A seemingly open-air chapel in the midst of a forest, Thorncrown Chapel is actually made of organic materials yet glass-enclosed and air-conditioned. The chapel is considered to be a significant influence in the field of architecture. The structure was designed so that each ray of light and change of weather makes the building appear different at every moment. Voluntary donations are accepted.

  • Sitting and enjoying when a staff member asked us if we wanted more information. Very helpful, wonderful place!
  • I've been here twice now and I am always pleased. Something about this place is just refreshing and powerful. It is a must-see!
  • I absolutely love this chapel. I could feel a spiritual connection as soon as I walked in the door. So much so it made me cry. It was a beautiful location and gorgeous chapel. I'm told it's Faith Hills' favorite chapel as well.
  • Must visit place. No other sources to support this chapel, all depends on donations. So, please pay forward if you want the next generation to see this beautiful place.
  • My husband and I were married here in 2009. It is a beautiful setting, no matter the time of year and the acoustics are incredible for music...a must see even if you're not in the market for marriage! :)
