This is an architectural wonder. Vertical beams soar up into the sky and lift your spirits high. 6,000 square feet of glass invite the outside in and you're in a protected place surrounded by trees. So green, so peaceful. I felt all the cares of the world fall away instantly. The veil between heaven and earth is mighty thin in... More

Amazing church hidden in the trees of Eureka. Not your typical church, a great example of Fay Jones' local architecture. Very welcoming, very relaxing and nicely secluded. Great place to admire the architecture or enjoy some quiet time. (If you like Thorncrown, you should definitely check out Cooper Chapel in Bella Vista, also designed by Fay Jones.)

If you have not stopped to visit the Thorncrown Chapel, you need to do so. Simply stunning architecture in a very peaceful setting. This chapel will not take a long time to visit but it's worth the drive.

Thorncrown Chapel is gorgeous! Although I am not a religious person, I was intrigued by this architectural beauty and I am so glad I got to see it in person. It truly is stunning. Inside it was quiet and peaceful, a place one could really reflect. It doesn't take long to drink it all in, I would recommend taking 15... More

My daughter and I attended worship services at Thorncrown while in Eureka Springs. It was a beautiful place to visit and worship. The lady playing the piano sang and had a beautiful voice. The service was on the traditional side which I loved. I would definitely go back.

Not only was the chapel beautiful, but so was the drive to get there! Wish we would have been a little earlier on Sunday morning to attend the service.

Our son and our new daughter-in-law were recently married at the Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs. What a beautiful place for a wedding. Everything was so beautiful.
