Vestige of White City Amusement Park
Hamilton Township Public Library Local History Collection
Thisimage, circa 1932, shows one of the last standing structures that were located in the once bustling midway of the White City Amusesment Park. It is reported that once the Park was abandoned, many of the buildings were scavenged for building materials. The site remained vacant until it was subdivided in the 1950s and single family homes were constructed.
