Edward H. Fish lived nearby at Buena Park close to his shop in Knotts Berry Farm, Ghost Town, California, where he kept shop in the Miner's Bank. The Bank still stands today and is part of an amusement park begun by Walter Knott on his berry 
farm. The Miner's Bank was built in 1954, merely as a replica of an Old West Gold Rush Era type bank. It was solely occupied by Ed Fish as his coin and stamp shop. The park is located a few miles west of Anaheim, California.
