George Washington’s hidden California fireplace at Knott’s Berry Farm – Randomland
Hidden away behind one of the original buildings at Knott’s Berry Farm is, among other early attractions, Walter Knott’s replica of George Washington’s kitchen fireplace.
Knott’s Berry Farm is well known today as a full-fledged amusement park featuring roller coasters, games, and even a neighboring water park. Just up the freeway from the world famous Disneyland, it provides a different, coaster-heavy experience at a relatively low price.
During the great depression, however, this was Walter Knott’s working berry farm. Among his other produce, he developed the original crop of Boysenberries here. Alongside him, his wife began a chicken dinner restaurant that brought families in from miles around. Soon Walter Knott began to add various displays and attractions to keep those hungry dinner guests and produce shoppers entertained.
