Executive Director Ian K. Seppala joined an esteemed panel to discuss the Stewart Park Carousel located in Ithaca New York. The presentation includes a brief history of later Herschell Carousels, a discussion on the history of Stewart Park, The restoration of the carousel, and more! A big thank you to all of the presenters and the Friends of Stewart Park for hosting such a wonderful program!
A recent article on the Family Vacationist named the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum as one of the Best 25 Things to Do in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Author Dave Parfitt is a well-known travel writer, with credits including Lonely Planet, AAA, & US News & World Report among others. Listed in the Family-Friendly Attractions section, Dave notes:
"Amusement park fans should stop at the Herschell Carrousel Factory in North Tonawanda, midway between Niagara Falls and Buffalo, where half of the hand-carved wooden carousels in North America were created. Head to this early 1900s factory to see the carving floor and take a ride on one of the two historic merry-go-rounds."
