Branson Talk / Mutton Hollow
« on: January 02, 2012, 09:31:58 AM »
Many years ago when we started visiting Branson and SDC there was a place called Mutton Hollow.  There was a long wooded drive down into the hollow just off of 76 Highway.  We enjoyed visiting there in the evening and the cabin restaurant.  If I recall correctly this is the area that is now occupied by Celebration City.  I wished that this could have been preserved and even today wish that this could be restored (although it would require planting a lot of trees).  

We enjoyed going down into that area after SDC closed for dinner and just mill around.  Celebration City purchased the park that replaced Mutton Hollow and was, as I understand it, a place for families to go in the evening.  To have traded Mutton Hollow for the Walt Disney like amusement park was in my opinion a missed opportunity.  You can ride go carts, roller coasters and play the arcade games almost any place.  But spending time around an open fire, roasting marshmallows, swapping stories, learning about the Branson folklore and just spending time together is something very unique and special to this area.  Mutton Hollow was and potentially could be that again.  If anyone could make this happen -- it would be the Herschend Family Entertainment organization.

P.S. If anyone has any pictures of Mutton Hollow or could point me towards a site -- I would love to check them out. - Thanks.

We have been attending SDC for 33 years.  The past few years I have focused on capturing images of this favorite place of ours.  My website is  I post a new picture each Sunday.  Past pictures are in the 'Silver Dollar City Archive' section.  I hope you enjoy.
