Happy Birthday to the largest statue of Jesus in the United States! Many of you have enjoyed the Passion Play here in Eureka Springs which is where the statue is located on Magnetic Mountain. You can view it from many spots all around town, and then walk to the base of the statue to get a great photo of it. There is also a scenic overlook at the location to view the downtown and mountains surrounding us. Our statue is 67 feet high with an arm span of 65 feet.
Below is a great article about our statue, and the others throughout the world.
We were recently interviewed for the Garden & Gun magazine. We weren’t familiar with it, but it is a beautiful magazine published in South Carolina. Think Southern Living, but something for the entire family. The article is on Northwest Arkansas, where to eat, what to do, and of course where to stay. Segments include Bentonville, Eureka Springs and Fayetteville. Jay Jennings is the author and now happy to say, customer. The August/September issue is on stands now, pick up and copy and see for yourself. Great recipes, gardening, hunting, fishing, and us!
