TheStoryOfSilverDollarCity[Book: Crystal Payton – 1999 – 18x19cm – 138 Pages – Many colour, few B&W photos]. Silver Dollar City (Branson, Missouri) is set in a densely wooded, 2,000-acre Ozark forest; the facsimile frontier village grew up around the entrance to one of nature’s great wonders, Marvel Cave. The story of how it came to be and the remarkable people, who created and developed it into an attraction hosting almost two million visitors a year, is itself a tale worth telling. Chapter Points: Marmaros and the Ozark Frontier; From Devil’s Den to the Cathedral Room; Twentieth Century Pioneers; A Major Theme Park; Citizens of the City; Features and Festivals; You’ve Got a Great Past Ahead of You.
