It’s not hard to understand why Harold Bell Wright decided to camp atop what is now known as Inspiration Point and is the second highest point in Southwest Missouri. Inspiration Point has a gorgeous view that extends all the way to the Boston Mountains in Northwest Arkansas on a clear day. It was here that Harold Bell Wright penned his notes for what would become the 2nd most widely read book in publishing history. Experience the breathtaking views from the hillside where he camped and drew the inspiration for The Shepherd of the Hills.
This beautiful church was saved from demolition and moved to Inspiration Point in 1991. It is quaint and simple, very similar to the churches that Harold Bell Wright ministered in as he traveled across southern Missouri.
As the tour leaves Inspiration Point, you’ll travel down the mountainside to the site of Old Matt’s grist mill. The Old Mill Theatre was built into this wooded setting over 50 years ago. You’ll be able to step on the stage of the popular Branson show for a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the nightly performance, and learn how some of the amazing special effects are achieved.
