    description:
    Ghost town restored in 1951 by Walter Knott (of Knott's BerryFarm fame). Later donated to San Bernardino County in 1966. Cafes, shops, saloon, walking tours. A living museum complete with a school house, train rides & dramatic re-enactments. Perfect family stop. Lots to see, do & learn about for the kids.
