Ghost Town, Knott’s Berry Farm

Buena Park, California

One of the places we enjoyed most was this authentic old store where we bought real hard rock candy, drank sarsaparilla and sat around the pot-bellied stove swopping stories with the general storekeeper and watching the old emitter’s checker game. Tonight we may go to the Wagon Camp to enjoy western entertainment and square dancing.

–There is another view of this building from a few days ago here. This card likely dates from the 1950s.

    Every year around Christmas, we purchase from Knots, for our son, know pancake mix and serrup. Who do I contact to purchase those items. We usually get a big box and extra serrup.
