Looking for an interesting museum to visit while you’re in Branson? The Harold Bell Wright Museum is full of interesting artifacts and history that made Branson the major tourist attraction that it is today.
One of the most widely read authors from the 20th century and the first to become a millionaire from his writing, Harold Bell Wright is the author of the famous novel “The Shepherd of the Hills” which was first published in 1907.
A story of God, love and the struggles of life, this novel is set in the Ozark Mountains during the 1800’s and still resonates with readers today as it did more than a hundred years ago. After the novel became popularized, people traveled from all over the country to see the Ozarks as described in Wright’s work.
At the Harold Bell Wright Museum you will be able to one of Wright’s original manuscripts, his gun collection, his woodworking tools, original paintings and you’ll even get to read a letter written to the Wright family from President Reagan expressing thanks for Wright’s influence in his life.
For a historic walk through time, visit the Harold Bell Wright Museum, located at 3609 W. 76 Country Blvd., in the same building as the World’s Largest Toy Museum.
