Experience the Magic
The history of Magic Water in Eureka Springs goes back through native legends at least 1000 years. Dr Alvah Jackson “discovered” Basin Spring in 1856 (Much the same way Columbus “discovered” America) and when the general public found out about it in 1879 the town exploded to over 15,000 residents in a year.
People came from all over the world, to take the magic cure. They would go to 10-12 springs a day, sampling the water, to be sure they were drinking the one that would magically cure whatever ailed them. And there are dozens of stories of miraculous cures for almost any disease you can imagine. We will recreate that 19th-century pilgrimage from Spring to Spring, recounting the stories of some of those pilgrims.
