Knott's chapel to be moved outside of the park

Posted Monday, September 15, 2003 4:47 AM | Contributed by Jeff

A historic chapel rescued from demolition by Walter Knott in 1955 will be moved out of the Buena Park theme park that bears his name to make way for a $3-million ride. A final service at the Church of Reflections will be held Oct. 5 before the pews, stained-glass windows and steeple are torn out, moved and reassembled across Beach Boulevard on a site just northeast of Knott's replica of Independence Hall. The chapel is expected to reopen in November.
