The late-nineteenth-century temperance leader Carry A. Nation spent her last years in Eureka Springs (Carroll County). She purchased a nearby farm and a house in the downtown area, which was to become a school to promote temperance. The house, named after her hatchet-wielding saloon attacks, was known as Hatchet Hall and can be seen in this 1935 photo. It was still standing as of 2019.
