For Southern Californians, the thought of Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park probably conjures up certain memories depending on their age. For older people, perhaps it's from wandering Ghost Town or waiting for three hours to eat at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant. Younger folks might remember the first time they hopped on the Calico Mountain Mine Ride or got spooked at Knott's Scary Farm.
Our speaker Eric Linxwiler, co-author of the book "Knott's Preserved" tells the story of how Walter and Cordelia Knott's roadside berry stand gradually transformed into a major theme park.
