Description

    "Haunted Shack" Ghost Town Sign (1954). The "Haunted Shack," a house of strange phenomena, opened in June 1954. Daily tours revealed gravity-defying mysteries inside that were narrated by the voice of wisecracking "Slanty Sam". This attraction was based on a similar one featured at the Calico Ghost Town (which Walter Knott purchased in the 1950s); the Knott's Berry Farm version closed in 2000. This is the original "Haunted Shack" wooden sign that perched on the roof near the front entrance, measuring a whopping 16' x 21". Years of outdoor use and storage have left the sign in a state of disrepair; it has boards behind it to keep the decaying wood together, but will need restoration. It's without a doubt an amazing piece of Ghost Town history that any devoted "Shacker" will cherish! In Fair condition.
