Good book with lots of interesting facts. I lived in Buena Park for 27 years and this book brought back memories of my time there, also provided information on what has happened to the city since moving from there over 21 years ago.

In the series Images of America: Buena Park, a town comes to life, and eventually the incorporation of a city built by and for many types of people with various ambitions. From the Rancho period, then land plotting by James Whitaker, and encouraged by the Santa Fe Railroad, to the present, with a succession of photographs, Dean O. Dixon invites everyone, and especially former as well as current residents to discover the city's past, even to realize the agricultural and industrial history existing years prior to its most well-known respected resident and industy, Walter Knott and Knott's Berry Farm. Mr. Dixon has also captured the strengths and weaknesses of the city fathers during the development, including the implementation of an historic preservation legacy. The readers of this history will be greatly inspired not only by the images but also by the renditions of the captions by Dean O. Dixon.
