Eureka Springs History
Pond Mountain

Pond Mountain

Q:   What is Pond Mountain?
A:
   It is a pond at the summit of a mountain. The actual rise of land is 1,755' according to topographical maps and was once considered the highest point in the Ozarks.

Q:   How does the water get there?
A:
   That was always part of the mystery. The level never changes as there is a constant run-off through a thicket of bamboo. The Pond is quite large and about 15' deep. Because of the constant overflow and the cold pockets it has to be spring fed. There is a very long dock, some nice rock work around one side and a rock bridge over the end with the overflow. In the summer you can't see through the surrounding trees, but in the winter you can see almost forever.

Q:   What is its history?
A:
   It was considered a place of beauty and interest, and was mentioned on many turn of-the-century brochures as "A great place for picnics and horseback rides."
