9. LEE MACE OZARK OPRY MUSEUM
Take a trip to the Lake’s past and experience the Ozark Opry location, the song’s, the instruments, and more. The museum is dedicated to preserving the memory of Lee Mace’s Ozark Opry, the Lake of the Ozarks first country music show.
Open All Year!
In the Ozarks, music frames everything. The Ozark Opry was a focal point of that cultural tradition for over fifty years, playing to sold-out audiences and influencing the course of the American entertainment industry in vital ways hitherto untold. This behind-the-scenes story of Lee and Joyce Mace’s incredible venture by historian and former Opry performer Dan William Peek reawakens the foot tapping and fiddle scraping still clinging to the shores of the Lake of the Ozarks. This story also spotlights some of the most fascinating characters of the times–the Nashville stars, Chuck Foster, the
Mabe Brothers, Albert Gannaway, Seymour Weiss, Scott O. Wright, Sarah
Gertrude Knott and Cyrus Crane Willmore.
