We have been going to see the wood carvers working on animals for the carousel for ten years. All are volunteeers, and they are doing beautiful work. There is a room that contains the mechanism for the ride, and also a gift shop that contains some antique pieces, but the best are the big carvings that have been "suggested" by the donors. Most are already painted, and some have been lent out to different businesses and can be seen around town. We always take visitors to see the carousel, and they love it, too. Docents and workers are glad to talk about the carousel, too, as you walk through the giant workshop.
