In 1980, E. Fay Jones, noted architect and apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright, unveiled the Thorncrown Chapel – a magnificent glass and timber construction located in the middle of a thicket near Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The chapel is one of the world’s finest examples of organic architecture and it has become a beloved monument for the people of Eureka and architecture enthusiasts across the globe. Unfortunately, the Southwest Power Company (SWEPCO) recently submitted an application to the Arkansas Public Service Commission (APSC) to construct a 48-mile-long high voltage transmission line across Northwest Arkansas that will encroach upon the Thorncrown Chapel‘s untouched landscape. While a number of community members have voiced their opposition, much more support is needed – sign this petition to stop SWEPCO from destroying the site of this important work!
