You Can Help Restore Our 100 Year Old Carrousel!

Help the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum save its 1916 Allan Herschell Carrousel!

A fundraising campaign for Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum

Do you remember riding the merry go round as child? Do you remember your hair flying back and the feeling of freedom as you rode up and down and listened to the magical sounds of the band organ?

Help the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum save its Allan Herschell Carrousel!  After 100 years of creating memories for generations our carrousel needs major repairs so we can all enjoy riding it once again. Over the winter 2 major parts cracked and must be replaced before the carrousel can operate.  We need your support to save this historic treasure. This carrousel belongs to all of us, and together we can restore this artistic icon that represents rare artistic skill and talent.

The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum offers a one-of-a-kind experience to ride an historic carrousel in the original factory where it was built. This beautiful carrousel was one of the first machines the Allan Herschell Factory shipped in 1916. Visitors can ride it whenever the museum is open, including all of our family events such as Halloween Spooktacular and Santa on the Carrousel. The museum staff and volunteers love watching the delight on visitors’ faces, young and old, as they ride the carrousel.

Your donation will continue this tradition for the next hundred years!
