Big Cedar Lodge
Business entrepreneur Jude Simmons and Frisco Railroad executive Harry Worman acquired 300 lushly forested acres to build country resort homes in the same fashion of the grand wilderness hunting lodges found in the Adirondacks. The materials were Tudor style of stone and stucco but native materials were used and can be seen at the Devil’s Pool Restaurant and The Worman House.
Dan Norris, a real estate executive and hotel operator, purchased the historic site in Missouri and added a lodge, swimming pool, and stable, renaming it Devil’s Pool Ranch Resort. 1958 The White River was dammed to form Table Rock Lake, the backdrop of the lodge.
Bass Pro Shops purchased the property with founder Johnny Morris restoring the Simmons and Worman buildings and renewing the natural beauty of Big Cedar Hollow.
