Garden Club Visits Quigley’s Castle

Quigley’s Castle is the dream home of Elise Quigley (1910-1984). Her grandchildren invite visitors to wander through her perennial garden of over 400 varieties of flowers. The Holiday Island Garden Club visited on Wednesday, June 16, 2021.

The Garden paths wind around secluded benches, a lily pond and bird baths up to her home which she beautifully covered with stones she’d collected since childhood. Tropical plants grow in the natural soil of the first floor and brush the ceiling of the second floor. She has a butterfly, fossil, crystal, arrowhead and glassware collection beyond imagination.

Quigley’s Castle is located 4 miles south of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. One can visit March through November.
