Buena Park Historic District
Historic tours are both fun and educational. It’s always interesting to see how things have changed over the years and what similarities still exists.

The Whitaker-Jaynes House gives a glimpse into how wealthier folks lived. The ceilings are high and the rooms are larger than I expected for an old home. It contains some original fixtures and other mementos, photos and period pieces have been donated over the years.

Next door is the old Stage Stop Hotel that is now a California Welcome Center.
