Annual Events

Eureka Springs Preservation Society sponsors one major fundraising event annually:

ESPS Honors Roenigks and Shank

The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow’s Board of Directors presented Elise Roenigk with a plaque dedicating 505 Spring Street to Elise and late husband, Marty, for their inspiration and participation in bringing the structure to new life and making it part of the Colony. Elise is shown holding the plaque while enjoying a seat on the lovely meditation bench donated by the Preservation Society and dedicated to Marty Roenigk on Nov. 9 during a ceremony hosted by WCDH. The Preservation Society also donated a statuesque birdbath dedicated in honor of co-founder, the late Ned Shank. Also present for the occasion was Shank’s wife and Colony co-founder, Crescent Dragonwagon.  (courtesy: Eureka Springs Independent)

ESPS Donates Tables for City Springs

Thanks to Preservation Society fundraising efforts, the Eureka Springs Preservation Society donated large granite tables with benches for three imaginatively landscaped city parks:  Crescent Spring, Sweet Spring, and Harding Spring.


Inscribed with the ESPS motto, "Our Past is Your Present," the table for Crescent Spring was delivered in October, 2010.


The tables for Sweet Spring and Harding Spring, also inscribed with the motto, are scheduled for delivery during June, 2011.


The table at Harding Springs honors the memory of Stephen White, former headmaster at Clear Spring School and strong advocate for Eureka Springs.
