The City of Branson Tree Board is proud to present the October Beautification Award, the final award for 2016. This month’s recipient is The Branson House located at 120 North Fourth Street. The house was originally constructed in 1923 by the Parnell family then purchased by Jim Owen. When Mr. Owen owned the property celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Charleston Hesston stayed at the house.
