We enjoyed a memorable church service at the chapel. The natural beauty surrounding the chapel was visible all during the service. The music was OUTSTANDING in the acoustically -pleasing unique building! It was like having church "outside" but you were indoors.

Thorncrown Chapel is a beautiful and scenic respite from the bustle of Eureka Springs. We enjoyed visiting, sitting in the sanctuary and listening to the worship music as we took it all in and enjoyed the strong Christian atmosphere. We highly recommend a visit to this especially for spiritual renewal that the scene provides.

It was absolutely beautiful architecture. I have never seen anything like it before. It almost reminded me of something I would see in the times of King Arthur (without glass, of course) A must see if you're in Eureka Springs!
