Your first stop will be Old Matt's Cabin, which served as the Ross family home for approximately 30 years before it was established in history through Harold Bell Wright's famous novel, Shepherd of the Hills. Inside the cabin you will find numerous antiques and historical items, including clothing worn by John and Anna Ross, some of their furniture, photographs, tools, cooking utensils, and much more. Then it's time to head on to the incredible views at Inspiration Point.

Trail of Lights and Christmas on the Trail

During the holiday season, the Shepherd of the Hills Homestead is transformed into a sparkling wonderland of holiday cheer. The Trail of Lights is a drive-thru light attraction, and Christmas on the Trail is a chuck wagon-style cowboy dinner and Christmas carol sing-a-long.

Great fun! I got to blow up the still!!! Well done, well presented and informative. Branson has a lot to be proud of!
