Voices from Eureka’s Silent City scheduled for October

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

The all-new 10th annual “Voices from Eureka’s Silent City” living history tour this year will be “Remembering the Armistice,” the signing of the end of WWI.

One hundred years ago on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, a treaty with Germany was signed that signaled a cease fire on the Western Front in France. To commemorate this armistice, the actors this year will tell the stories of some of the local soldiers and how the war affected them and also the lives of those left behind here in Eureka Springs.

The performance dates are Thursday, Oct. 18, Friday, Oct. 19, and Saturday, Oct. 20, then again on Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Eureka Springs City Cemetery.

The guided tours begin at 5:30 pm and every 20 minutes thereafter until 8:30 pm. There is free parking at the former Victoria Inn parking lot on Highway 62 East with free shuttle service to the cemetery. There is no parking at the cemetery.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Tickets will be available soon but may also be purchased at the parking site (4028 E. Van Buren Street) on performance dates.

For more information, contact the Eureka Springs Historical Museum at 95 South Main Street or call the museum at 479-253-9417 for tickets or more information.

This event is a major fundraising event for the Eureka Springs Historical Museum, a 501c(3) nonprofit.
