The Old Mill Stream, Knott's Berry Farm & Tustin



Today's images show The Old Mill Stream attraction at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park. The color image was taken sometime around 1960. The black and white photo from 1958 shows Walter Knott catching both a rainbow trout and the attention of a large audience. For a close-up of the building, click on the third (small) image.

This post comes on the heels of two related posts on different blogs. Both Gorilla's Don't Blog and Outside The Berm have recently featured The Old Mill Stream, and who am I to fight an Internet meme?

The Tustin Preservation Conservancy will hold their annual Preservation Awards Dinner on April 28, 6:30pm, at the Beach Pit BarBQ in Old Town Tustin. Visit their website for more information.

In an email to me, Linda Jennings wrote, "I'm president of the Tustin Preservation Conservancy, a group formed in 2004 after the Tustin City Council demolished the old Utt Juice Building for new development. We are particularly interested in preserving our architecture and our neighborhood."

Those sound like worthwhile goals to me!

Wow, love the color shot on top!

It's funny how the little details bring back the memories. I can clearly recall standing near those jets of recirculating water as a little kid and pondering their purpose.
