Hawley & Co. Book Store, Publishers, Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
Eureka Springs is a city in Carroll County, and one of two county seats, located in the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas. The entire city is on the National Register of Historic Places as the Eureka Springs Historic District, and a popular tourist destination. The city has steep winding streets filled with Victorian-style cottages and manors. The old commercial section of the city has an alpine character, with an extensive streetscape of well-preserved Victorian buildings. The buildings are primarily constructed of local stone and lie along streets that curve around the hills and rise and fall with the topography in a five-mile long loop. Some buildings have street-level entrances on more than one floor. Eureka Springs has historically been called The Little Switzerland of America and The Stairstep Town because of its mountainous terrain and the winding, up-and-down paths of its streets and walkways. The streets wind around the town, and no two intersect at a 90 degree angle; there are no traffic lights.
