Harold Bell Wright wrote the novel The Shepherd of the Hills here in the Ozark Mountain Country and came every summer for 8 years and stayed up near the old homestead where the characters of his novel lived. He had originally come here for his health but loved the hills so much he just kept coming back time after time.
His memorabilia are in a collection of furniture, clothing, writing material and all the stuff he used while writing 19 books. He was also a artist and preacher and in the museum you will see his gun collection from the turn of the century period and before.
After writing his Shepherd of the Hills novel he became quite famous and his books were translated in other languages and were found all over the world. Check out his museum here along with the World Biggest Toy Museum. See them Both!
