July 8th, 2018, Carousel Museum

The New England Carousel Museum in Bristol, CT, is in a closed hosiery factory.
Typical New England, where closed manufacturing facilities are being repurposed while the owners wait for America to be great again.



Quote:
Beginning with a single horse, nearly 30 years of work have made this non-profit attraction a fixture in Connecticut historical preservation.
The large brick building, once a hosiery factory, now houses dozens of carousel horses and even has a working carousel of its own.


Quote:
On the museum’s guided tours, you’ll learn the origins and development of carousels.
You’ll also learn the process of making carousel horses and the big names that made them.
Samples of the different types of carousel craftsmanship, including those of the Philadelphia, Coney Island, and Country Fair styles, abound.
The Philly style are the shinizzle.




Quote:
Many of the pieces are still privately owned and are shown at the museum for housing and restoration purposes.
The museum also boasts its own restoration room, art gallery, and fire history museum.

If you prefer carousels which actually work you could visit Broome County NY.

Between 1919 and 1934, George F. Johnson (1857-1948), shoe
manufacturer and great benefactor, donated six beautiful
carousels to our local parks. Johnson’s commitment to recreation
was always more than just good business. He felt carousels
contributed to a happy life and would help youngsters grow into
strong and useful citizens. Because of his own poor childhood,
“George F.” believed carousels should be enjoyed by everyone
and insisted that the municipalities never charge money for a
magic ride.

That sounds like fun. Broome County? I wonder if we'd see Opus and Bill?
