Legend City #1

Posted By on August 10, 2013


IVAN L C 50th.A few weeks ago I was invited to the 50 year anniversary of Legend City. I must say it was a great event. The original owner and builder of Legend City, Mr Carothers, also attended. The park went through many owners. The Bill Capell Family were the last to own Legend City from 1976 the 1983. It was then sold to land developers. I spent 1977 through the end as manager of the park . It was fun visiting with the people that worked for us then.Wallace of Wallace and Ladmo and Ron Nix were at the top of the list of our entertainment at that time.They attended  as well.  The park opened in 1963 and actually closed for good after the sale in 1983. A gentlemen who’s name escapes me started a fan club for Legend City Amusement Park. There had to be at this event 4 to 5 hundred people that attended this reunion. All because of this one person that loved Legend City. Thank you….it was a great event.
