Knott's Berry Farm Ghost Town Celebrates 75 Years
In 1941, Walter Knott welcomed visitors to his Ghost Town attraction, the little western village that he had created behind the family's restaurant and berry stand. It was a quaint little collection of old buildings and vintage shacks where diners could spend a little time while they waited for one of Mrs. Knott's famous chicken dinners.
Orange County historian and author, Phil Brigandi, discusses the humble beginnings of Knott's Berry Farm and its Ghost Town attraction, which is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this summer.
