Knobels Amusement Park's Entrance Welcome Sign Knoebels Amusement Park got its start at the turn of the century. Harry Hartman Knoebel started out charging 25 cents to water and brush the horses for the visitors while they went swimming and picnicing on his property. Eventually he added picnic tables and sold ice cream and snacks to the children. Around 1926 Harry Knoebel added a swimming pool, cottages, and a carousel. By the 1940 Knoebels Amusement Park and Rustic Resort was born. Creating the most unique Pennsylvania Amusement Park in the U.S..
