Yet More Knott's Berry Farm, June 1958

Sorry about the late post, Blogger wouldn't let me update for some reason. Today is the final day of my star-studded salute to Knott's Berry Farm. We'll return to Disneyland tomorrow!

This is one of the stranger vintage Knott's images I've ever seen! This nicely-dressed couple has decided to get a little fresh air, and brought along their baby doll in a peramulator. This reminds me of the stuffed granny that used to sit on a porch at Disneyland.

I couldn't find any information at all about this couple posing in front of a tepee. I have a postcard of a Native American couple named Blue Eagle and Sunbeam, but they were definitely different people.

I can't thank you enough for these great Knotts posts. I'm all eyes if you ever do it again.

Thanks, merlinsguy! I will try to post more someday.

Anonymous, I only have a couple of not-so-great exteriors of the Haunted Shack. Believe me, I wish I had better examples, since I have many fond memories of it. The "Mystery Spot" in Santa Cruz brought back some Haunted Shack nostalgia!

I've only recently discovered the Blog. It's amazing. I love all the old pictures, especially of Knott's. I'm the webmaster of, a website I used to auther a number of years ago, and have recently brought back from the cyber-grave. It was the first all-Knott's fan site and has current pictures as well as a slowly growing collection of vintage pictures.

I have a page about the Haunted Shack, with pictures taken right before it closed. The exterior shots aren't the best (I didn't know it was closing until Haunt of that year), but I do have interior pictures that I haven't seen anywhere else.

Keep up the good work!
