A lot has changed for Knott's Berry Farm over the years. What began as a humble berry stand is now the sprawling home of Snoopy and the Peanuts gang, roller coasters, and a line of jellies, jams, and preserves. Take a look at these vintage photos of the park of the past, when attractions such as a seal pool and mascots Boysen Bear-y and Girlsen Bear-y existed.
