Before there was a Disneyland, there was Knott’s Berry Farm. What
started out in the early 1920s as a small, roadside berry stand in Buena Park, California, grew over the next 60 years into one of the most popular amusement parks in the world. Its founder, Walter Knott, along with his wife and family, knew no boundaries when it came to expanding his small berry market and tearoom into the world-famous Chicken Dinner Restaurant and later adding his ultimate achievement, Ghost Town. Jay Jennings, who grew up in the 1970s, spending his weekends at various Southern California amusement parks, has also spent the last 25 years researching the history of amusement parks, with an emphasis on Knott’s Berry Farm.
