Harold Bell Wright's novel, 'The Shepherd of the Hills', ensured that this author would become one of the first writers to have ever become a millionaire through their work, but also influenced a wide array of people, including Former President Ronald Reagan- who's letter of gratitude to Wright is displayed at the Homestead still. Along with this fascinating personal document, one of many Wright had saved and that are displayed today, there is also his famous gun collection. Many of the pieces in that collection are considered antiques today, most of them unable to be seen by the public eye anywhere.
