Featured in “Carousel Enchantment” June 2011

The Armitage-Herschell portable steam driven, hand-carved wooden carousel was constructed circa 1892 and is one of only 200 in operation around the world. Featuring 36 Dare horses and 2 chariots, it was purchased by the Steampacket Place Development Board in 1996 and painstakingly restored.

There is also a replica 1898 Gavioli Band organ in the pavilion.
