Eureka Springs School District
Founded in 1879, the city of Eureka Springs is located in Carroll County approximately 26 miles north of Huntsville. Eureka Springs has long been a destination for travelers because of it's rumored healing waters and natural beauty in the Ozark Mountains. After his term as a reconstruction governor, Powell Clayton moved to Eureka Springs and began promoting the city and it's commercial interests. Clayton promoted the town as a retirement community for the wealthy and Eureka Springs soon became known for gracious living and a wealthy lifestyle. As of the 2010 census, Eureka Springs had a population of 2,073 residents.
Carroll County with its flat-topped mountains covered with upland forests of oak and hickory, known as the Ozark Mountain Region, was formed on November 1, 1823, and named for Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence from Maryland. Poultry growing and processing has become the number one economic activity with tourism and beef production close behind. Some of the most spectacular scenery in the Ozarks is found here. Forest, meadows, limestone bluffs, and springs are breath taking. Carroll County has dual county seats, Berryville, an old fashion town square, is surrounded by shops, restaurants and museums, and Eureka Springs, called "Little Switzerland." Victorian cottages cling to the hillsides; steep winding streets never cross at right angles. Some of the finest artists live and work in the county. Beaver and Table Rock Lakes offer fishing, boating, swimming and other water sports. As of 2011, Carroll County had a population of 27,512 residents.
