Little Chapel, Knott’s Berry Farm, Buena Park, California

This is a photo of one of two chapels that once occupied a place on the Knott’s Berry Farm property. This one, known as the Little Chapel by the Lake, has been demolished, while the other has been relocated.

In this little Adobe Chapel we have sen the most inspiring painting of the Christ called “The Transfiguration”, as beautiful and fitting end to a very enjoyable visit to the Farm and its spectacular Ghost Town.

–The painting was made to glow in the dark under ultra-violet light, and when so illuminated, the eyes of the Christ portrait would appear to open and look at the viewer. This card likely dates to the 1950s.

    How can I get this card of Jesus opening his eyes in the dark. I would like to get some for my grandchildren.

      Given the age of this card, I am not certain that they are still available for sale. However, the best place to try is at Knott’s Berry Farm, which can be contacted at this address:

      There is a submission form at the bottom of their web page where you can ask if the cards you want are still made and sold. Otherwise, you might have some luck on a site like eBay for used copies.
