About the Shepherd of the Hills Historic Homestead


The Shepherd of the Hills inspired not only vast tourism in the Branson area, but it also remains a part of history entrapped within a novel and the site that is still a part of the Ozark Mountain area to this day. The novel was written by Harold Bell Wright and was instantly a hit within the area, sparking interest and travel to the area. This ended up being the foundation of Branson tourism.

Although we enjoyed this attraction, we were driving a dually truck and there road you drive on was very tight and made for small cars. The lights and attractions were nice, but some looked like they needed updating.
