Some history from the web: It all started as an innocent vacation to the beach, back in 1961... Allen & Don Fasnacht, their wives Jean & Dee, & their parents Al & Sis visited the place that was to become Funland during a trip to the Delaware seashore in August of 1961. At the time, the family was operating a small "picnic park" near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, called Willow Mill Park. Being the park people that they were, they visited the Rehoboth Beach Sports Center, as it was called when the Dentino family owned it. While they were talking about the ins & outs of the park business with Mr Dentino, he asked if they might be interested in buying the Sports Center. Yeah right, was the thought not spoken, but that was going through the Fasnachts' minds. Mr. Dentino affirmed that he was indeed interested in selling the business & that the Fasnachts should think about buying it. Think about it is exactly what the family did when they returned home. It became a recurring topic in the Fasnacht family. They called Mr. Dentino & decided to go through with the purchase. Settlement on the park was to be on March 15, 1962. The Great Atlantic Storm hit on March 6th, devastating the entire eastern seacoast. The Fasnacht family traveled down from Hershey, & the Dentino family came up from Florida to assess the situation. Both families agreed to go ahead with the deal after they worked out an allowance for the damage. The rest is history: expanding the park here & there, adding rides & games, & buying adjoining properties for the growing family & their children. Between the two brothers, Allen & Don, there are now five children & four grandchildren who are directly involved with the business. They, along with their spouses (and now six great-grandchildren), a brother-in-law, his wife & their family are all continuing that heritage that began half a century ago!

Makes a terrific gift for the vintage historic Rehoboth Beach, DE/mini golf local collector or an addition to your collection! pub places dir Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Matted Photograph | 8x10 - Funland Building, De
