Located in the southern part of California and a city in Orange County, Buena Park, also known as Buena Plaza originally forms part of the Rancho Los Coyotes. The area was laid out by a Chicago grocer who had intentions of building a cattle ranch bought 700 acres of the land area in the 1850s. The aircraft industry and food processing supplement the city’s current economy. Buena Park serves as a depot to the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific railroads, which was then developed to become a center for dairy products, and was then master-planned to become a residential community that is connected by the freeway. The city became a popular tourist destination, as it is home to Knott’s Berry Farm, an expansive amusement center, and to the Movieland Wax Museum.
