I am a Frank Lloyd Wright fan so there is no way I would miss this chapel designed by one of his apprentices. It is a beautiful and amazing place.

We were not familiar with this chapel beforehand and were pleasantly surprised. Lovely setting in the woods. Chapel has won many archetectural awards.

Although not religious, I love visiting chapels. Thorncrown did not disappoint! I felt tremendous peace and release of tense stress. It isn't a long stop, so I'd recommend it any time you're in ES!

This is a magnificent piece of architecture nestled in natural surroundings that flow into the space. The story about the chapel is also very interesting. If you're traveling to Eureka Springs, please take a few minutes to visit this hidden treasure!

This truly is the house of God. Set in the woods of Eureka Springs it is a place you should add to your bucket list. We went for the 11 o'clock service on Sunday morning and the music was beautiful. The service was quite and I thoroughly enjoyed the message. Loved it!

Great location with scenery all through out. If you love nature and wants a breeze that calms yiur body and soul then check this place. It feels good just sitting inside looking through the glass walls and windows.
