Old Sycamore Log Church

Is there an easy way to get there from Branson?

. The church is located off Mo. 248 on Skyline Road

THE LOG CHURCH

They have builded a church of Sycamore Logs
Down in the Ozarks Hills; Near by the rippling water
Near music of whip-poor-wills A sacred shrine there
in the mountains
Where old fires of holiness glow,
And from ridges and rocky hollow
Come people I used to know
Gathering at early candle light
Just as we used to do
When we bashfully sat together
Young lovers, ardent and true
With sly jokes of the marrying parson
Our kind old Uncle John Speer
Who baptized, and buried, and married us
For nigh onto fourty year.
0, take me back to my Ozarks
To the little log church on the hill
To find my lost faith and courage
And old friends who love me still.

I believe it is on Sycamore Church road off of 248.
Also, I was thinking that Zach7777 gave a really detailed post of landmarks on 248 till you get to the turn. Couldn't find that post though.

Here's the thread from last year that gives good directions. I drove out there last year & glad I did.

Exact Location



Based on this image, it looks like its address is 2402 Sycamore Church Rd. I looked it up with Google Maps (http://goo.gl/maps/kIk0A) and, though it's covered by trees, it looks like you can see a bit of the roof. Can anyone confirm?

If you just follow the very good directions given in the post previous to this last one, you'll have no trouble at all in finding it.

Thanks for all the good directions. We will do the drive and see a bit of Ozark history.

What is at the end of the road??

You might be surprised where you come out. It's a piece of Branson area history too. I'll spill the beans if you want.

Does anyone know the times and dates of any services there, or how to find them? We have been there, and wondered if we could attend a service there. It's such a quaint little church. Gives one a calm, peaceful feeling.
