Here's a link to a silent film made in the 1920s, by the Ford Motor Company, about Eureka Springs, Arkansas. A few Model Ts are shown driving down the mountain roads, about half way through the film.

Thanks for posting. I have been to Eureka Springs many times ... I love the old films ...

Great old film, just think the upbeat Scott Joplin Rags were a little too much. But that's just me.

The Model T clubs in this area (AR, MO, and OK) often have tours in Eureka Springs. It's a very special place. All through the spring, summer, and fall there is some sort of car club event taking place every weekend. Model T's, Model A's, VW's, Corvettes, Mustangs, Miatas, and Porsches, just to name a few.

I never heard of the Crescent College, but it must have been near the Crescent Hotel, which goes to the top of the "highest hill in Eureka," as mentioned in the video. The Crescent Hotel is 9 stories tall and every floor is at ground level!

The Crescent was converted to a women's college after its first run as a hotel failed, then it was a cancer "hospital", then in one form or another made an attempt at becoming a hotel again over the next several decades.

Thanks for that info, Walter.
