Description
Historic Homestead Tour Photos (10)

Embark on a 60-minute, Jeep-drawn tram tour of the Historic Homestead Tour, which includes stops at Old Matt's Cabin, Inspiration Point, Wright Church, and Little Pete's Cave. You'll see the real homes of the characters from Harold Bell Wright's The Shepherd of the Hills. 

This novel is Wright's most famous work, published in 1907. The shepherd, an elderly and mysterious stranger, escapes his life in the city to come to this part of the country. He stays in Mutton Hollow of the Ozarks where he encounters the main characters of the novel. He follows them through their hardships and teaches the readers about strength and weakness, success and failure, and absolution and punishment. 

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. 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.
