The Perry House - Basin Park Hotel
1884 - Cutter's Guide
The Eureka Springs of Arkansas
The hotels and boarding houses of Eureka Springs are numerous. The Perry House is the only real first-class hotel in the city; and we say this with no disparagement of the Southern, Hancock, Harper or other houses that would be the first-class houses but for the Perry House.
The Perry House 1881-1890
This first-class hotel was built around two-years ago, by Mr. Joseph Perry, of Colorado, a gentleman who has built more good hotels on the line of the railroads in Kansas City and Colorado. Mr. Perry came to Eureka Springs as an invalid and considered incurable, but he was so quickly and perfectly cured of his sufferings that he felt grateful enough to build a fine hotel. He has not only built a fine house, but [h]as furnished it throughout in the best manner, and keeps it in first-class style in every particular.
