Other Info
Might be fenced in, will need to check when we get there.

Built in 1937, the small, Christmas-themed collection of gift shops and child amusements went out of business in 1995. In the early 1990s you could still feast on Dasher and Dancer omelettes, Santa Claus burgers, and purchase oil portraits of John Wayne.

 

What remains? Several vandalized buildings, a wishing well, and a derailed, graffiti-tagged, pink children's train -- the "Old 1225." Hand-painted renderings of Santa and his elves decorate the train, growing scarier with each passing season of erosion.

The steep-roofed main building sported a sign: "This is it! Santa's Land Office," but the "Office" appears to have been added later, as if someone tried to make a go of another venture. There was also a realtor's sign, hope against hope an investor will find a new use for this classic roadside property.

Interesting stop, not much left of the old Santa Claus park. Just a few buildings remain as you will see in the picture. The land is still up for sale and would've been cool to be the owner of Santa Claus. .
