Curator and collector Jay Jennings displays just a small sample from the Knott's Berry Farm Museum's vast collection of vintage memorabilia dating as far back as the late-1920s. These rare items include menus, maps, matchbooks, ashtrays, cigarette lighters, films, toys, books, brochures, pictorial guides, magazines, tickets, mugs, shot glasses, spoons, snapshots, postcards, signed letters, and much more. Many of these one-of-a-kind items were donated to the museum by past farm employees and even the Knott family themselves.
