trips.eurekaspringshistory.com [cached]

Russell McBroom was born at Pasadena, Texas and before the age of 14 had lived in 38 states, during which, he had attended 7 elementary schools in one year. His father was a "Punch List" inspector for Exxon and superintendent of nine other families that comprised his inspection team. With such a large contingency of peers, Russell learned quickly to adapt to new situations and to develop a yen for exploring. It was natural for him to join the Coast Guard and become more traveled for 4 years, during which time he married his one and only bride who also had the call for exploring. Russell became adept at many skills which resulted in employment such as a foundation driller, land surveyor, hardware retailer, and maintenance operations - which he performed in most of the hotels in Eureka Springs and at many of the local lodging properties. He did a stint with the City Parks Department for a year and even taught at the University of Texas for one year. He and his wife frequently visited Eureka Springs during the mid-80s which resulted in a number of return stays for several years where his fondness for the Ozarks was ever increased. His departures from Eureka were only induced by economic slow-downs that resulted in his taking employ elsewhere only to return again and again and finally to stay in Eureka Springs for his longest length of time once becoming general manager of the Palace Hotel and Spa in 2006. During part of his life, for 8 years, he became self-employed, in partial retirement, during which time he and his wife became soul wanderers in quest of new adventures in seeking out nature's wonders. . He has a penchant for cemeteries and caves, to which he has explored many throughout the area. Some of his favorite places to bring his metal detector are the Madison County Wildlife reserve, Pension Mountain, Butler Hollow, and Lake Leatherwood where he has traveled the long lost original wagon trails that facilitated people to reach Eureka Springs and the Healing Waters during the late 1800s. His temperament gains him satisfaction and solace as he continues weekly treks into the mountains and the hollows in finding lost trails. He regenerates in these new found footprints which disclose the early homesteads founded by the first frontier families of Gaskins, Hobbs, Brookers, Isaacs, and others.

Trips 'n Treks TRIPS & PHOTO FILES Trips with Russell have become fascinating because not only does he know the area, but he knows many different approaches and county roads that are not on everyone's maps. When he finds an interesting landmark, he jots down the GPS readings for future references. He also has a lot of stories that need telling. It seems that some Apple Computers can't read WMV files Click below photo to join Russell at the Railroad Tunnel and trestle and other sites.
The Tunnel is reached from Hwy 23N past Holiday Island and taking a right at CR 220 and approx 1 1/2 miles take a right on CR 250. The Trestle is locatged 1.2 miles west of the tunnel along the Railroad Right-of-Way. The Old House Foundation is located on an old raad near the tunnel entrance having a Spring Box and a Well. The last photos show the WYE at Hwy 23N and Livingston Hollow, situated 2miles north of Eureka. Click below photo to join Russell on trip to Hogscald Hollow.
...
Click below photo to join Russell on trip to Pension Mountain's Red School House and Cemetery. Also, Rock General Store.
Access to Pension Mountain is by way of Rockhouse Road and take a left on CR 221 to CR 501 where the Red School House is located with vandalism evident. The Cemetery is at CR 507 and CR 523 along the Kings River. The former General Store is on CR 327 showing great deterioration and stolen rocks since Russell's last trip there in 2007.
