Buena Park, Brea, and O.C. Railroads

This map of Buena Park's Japanese Village & Deer Park appears on a number of websites, but I did at least clean it up a bit in Photoshop. This tourist attraction had a fairly short life, opening in 1967 and closing in 1974. It was north of Knott's Berry Farm, near the intersection of Manchester and Stanton Ave.
The Brea Museum & Heritage Center, 495 S. Brea Blvd, will host an exhibit July 3 to Sept. 18 on early U.S. aviation history – with an emphasis on Southern California. The exhibit includes historical photos and documents and a walk-in diorama booth featuring the famous Jan. 1910 Air Meet at Rancho Dominguez Field. The Museum is open on Saturdays, 10am to 3pm.
Rob Richardson will discuss and sign his new book, Railroads and Depots of Orange County, at the Old Orange County Courthouse on July 1, from noon to 1pm.
