“The Ozarks' Strangest Dwelling”
Quigley`s Castle is the dream home of Elise Quigley (1910-1984). Her grandchildren invite visitors to wander through her perennial garden of over 400 varieties of flowers.The Garden paths wind around secluded benches, a lily pond and bird baths up to her home which she beautifully covered with stones she`d collected since childhood.See how she found a way to sleep in tree tops full of bloom. Tropical plants grow in the natural soil of the first floor and brush the ceiling of the second floor. She has a butterfly, fossil, crystal, arrowhead and glassware collection beyond imagination.Quigley`s Castle is located 4 miles south of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. One can visit March through November.
Beautiful Historic Home! Ozark's Strangest Dwelling is located just outside of Eureka Springs. If you love nature this is the place to go. The guide gives you a quick history, which tells of Mrs. Quigley's determination to build her dream home. Her house and garden utilized her rock collection of her childhood. A must see on your road trip through Eureka Springs. I loved stopping here and I tell all my friends about it.
Very neat place! Off the beaten path and fairly easy to find. The people who live there operate the tour. Make sure you bring cash as it's easier! The guide gives you a few quick messages about the house then your on your way. Many great photos opps!
We were pleasantly surprised by this neat stop. The gardens were beautiful and the house was cool too. My kids loved all the rocks and shells. They have an impressive collection. Great stop!
