Begun in 1920 as a berry farm with a popular roadside stand Knott's Berry Farm has become the brand name of two separate entities: Theme park in Buena Park, California now owned by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company. Jams, jellies and preserves manufacturer of food specialty products now part of The J. M. Smucker Company based in Placentia, California. A restaurant, shops and stores were augmented with minor attractions and curiosities until Walter Knott gradually created Ghost Town transforming them from a way-point to a Western themed destination in 1940.
