Rosalie House


Back in 1883 when J.W. Hill began construction on Rosalie House in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, he declared it would be “the prettiest and fanciest home on The Boulavard.”  It was and still is.  J.W. was the wealthiest man in town at the time.  He owned several businesses and built the phone company in Eureka.  Rosalie House is a stunning example of Eastlake and Steamboat Gothic architecture.  Carolyn says it’s “a gingerbread house with lots of frosting.”  I think that description fits it well. Rosalie is a well-known structure and often used to promote Eureka Springs.  It’s been featured in numerous publications including Southern Living and Architectural Digest.  Located at 282 Spring Street, it’s a ‘must see’ if you visit picturesque Eureka Springs.
