This architectural marvel is so well- loved and preserved, I was so happy to see it again, sitting nestled in the forest. Frank Lloyd Wright could not have built a lovelier chapel in the woods.

This is great place to stop and visit. Very unusually building structure. The church is surrounded with trees so you won't have to worry about being burnt up by the hot soon. It is free by they do accept donations. Wee worth seeing.

Just a short drive out of town and this lovely chapel is nestled among the trees. The architecture is just amazing. Such a quiet and peaceful setting to gather your thoughts and say your payers if you want.

The site, design, and construction were very interesting but this felt like another tourist stop on the scenic route. Having heard so many lavish descriptions of it over the years, I was expecting something spectacular like Transfiguration Chapel at Camp Mitchell (not far from Morrilton,...More

The Wife and I were in Eureka Springs for Mustang weekend, and decided to see the sights. We were directed to Thorncrown Chapel by locals. It was amazing, to say the least. The chapel is nestled in the woods and is as beautiful as it...More

Sorry for the tardy reply. Yes, it is wheelchair accessible although it is a long trek (about 200 meters) from the parking lot. Double doors allow for entry by wheelchairs.
