You’ll find the Independence Hall attraction on the grounds of Knott’s Berry Farm, along with three hours of free parking!

QUESTION:

Why does California have a free-admission exact, brick-by-brick replica of Independence Hall on the theme park grounds of Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park?

ANSWER:

Because founder Walter Knott sought to create a reminder of two famous events: the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the signing of the U.S. Constitution. An avid proponent of American history and values, Walter Knott constructed the building for the millions of West Coast families unable to travel to Philadelphia to tour the original.  Go see it!
