Old World Village was built by Josef Bischof, a German developer who came to this country in 1952 and dreamed of bringing with him a piece of his homeland to share. He and his family built 50 homes above 50 shops in the traditional Bavarian style in Huntington Beach. They imported lanterns to light the way along the cobble stone streets, left space on the building's walls for 70 vibrant murals, depicting scenes from 18 European countries. They built a church for worship, a hall for gatherings and wedding receptions, also a garden gazebo, a restaurant, and a market. Opened to the public in 1978, today his children Bernie Bischof and Cyndie Kasko continue to operate the family business and keep family traditions alive for others to experience and enjoy.
