The Ozarks in Arkansas: Thorncrown Chapel

Between the Truman and Clinton presidential lbraries, we spent a few days exploring the Ozarks in Arkansas. We began in Eureka Springs, a picturesque Victorian town. One of its major attractions, on the outskirts of town, is the Thorncrown Chapel. According to Wikipedia: "The building was selected for the 2006 "Twenty-Five Year Award" by the American Institute of Architects, recognizing structures that have had significant influence on the profession. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000."

It is indeed an imaginative, attractive, and peaceful structure, in lovely surroundings.
