Rehoboth Beach Museum to host Funland program July 9

July 1, 2020

The Rehoboth Beach Museum invites members and friends to join an online conversation with Chris Lindsley, author of “Land of Fun: The Story of an Old-Fashioned Amusement Park for the Ages,” at 2:30 p.m., Thursday, July 9.

For many families, a vacation to Rehoboth Beach was not complete without a visit to Funland on the Boardwalk. Memories flow through many generations and grandparents now take their grandchildren, while parents reminisce about their years as children.

This year is one of the few times Funland has not opened for Mother's Day. It's still unsure when Funland in Rehoboth Beach will reopen. 

Last year the museum helped launch the publication of this book with an appearance by Lindsley as he interviewed four generations of the Fasnacht family.

Lindsley’s book is filled with personal history of Funland and is based on primary research with the family. It is also part memoir of his six summers operating rides and games at Funland. Lindsley includes photographs of the amusement park from the storm of '62 to present day.
