Description

BRANSON IMAGES OF AMERICA BOOK.  127 pages.

In 1939  Branson was described as “the paradise of the Ozarksthe playground of America.” Originally home to the Osage  the harsh rocky terrain made homesteading difficult. The Ozarks’s wilderness became a hideout for bushwhackers following the Civil War. The masked “Bald Knobbers” developed as vigilantes to defend mountain families. Today  the “Baldknobbers” are known as Branson’s first musical show. In 1894  tours began in Marble Cave  one of 8 000 Ozarks caves. Now known as Marvel Cave  it boasts the largest cave entrance room in the United States and remains a main attraction at Silver Dollar City’s theme park. Many visitors are lured by the natural beauty  healthful atmosphere  and recreational activities offered in the Ozarks. Harold Bell Wright penned The Shepherd of the Hills while recuperating here at the beginning of the 20th century. A wave of tourism to the Branson area followed its 1907 publication. Today  the “Live Entertainment Capital of the World” welcomes more than eight million visitors yearly.
