ABSTRACT
The article reports on Eureka Springs, Arkansas where Gerald L. K. Smith built several projects promoting his devotion to Jesus Christ. The place, known as the Little Switzerland of the Ozarks or the Stairstep Town, was promoted for the healing spring water. Smith purchased a home there called the Penn Castle and also invested in land to build a large image of Jesus Christ. Despite the community resistance, the community accepted it, welcomed the business and the tourism benefits.
