Knott's Berry Farm- Goldie's Place

Knott's Berry Farm is famous for their peek-in ghost Town scenes. Here we see Goldie's Place, Knott's very own house of ill repute. The building has recently been torn down for a major remodel, and is scheduled to be rebuilt. These photographs show the place before the demolition.

The ladies of the night. This picture was taken after dark, when the building's interior lights were on. Though the detail is not quite as good on these figures as some of the other buildings, the mannequins do offer an idealized view of these women.

This is the most prominent figure. Could this be Goldie?

The front door of Goldie's Place. They won't do much business with that huge lock preventing people from entering.

Goldie's Place
A house for 'ladies of the night' was a permanent fixture in most mining towns, so our Ghost Town would not be complete without this building. Goldie has the only parlor in town and it is decorated in shades of her favorite color, red. 

Goldie's Place was built in 1940, and is copied after an old building standing in Bodie before much of that town was burned out.
