One of the famous landmarks in Orange County was Arnold's Farm House, a buffet-style restaurant in Buena Park,
on the corner of Stanton and Manchester, just a block from Knott's Berry Farm.
I was started in 1956, supposedly from
an old farm house that had been standing there since the early 1900's. It was a landmark because of the huge neon windmill
drawing in families tired from a day at Knott's.
The family that owned Arnold's Farm House, also owned The Buttery,
another restaurant on the other side of Stanton, but a traditional, up-scale place.
The restaurant finally gave way
to the wrecking ball in 1988, and is now the home to a car dealership.
