Carrousel Chat: “Return to Glory: Restoring Historic Carrousel Horses”
Speaker: Charles Proefrock, President, Carousel Society of the Niagara Frontier
Fewer than 150 hand-carved carrousels exist today in the United States. Preservation of these treasures is of national concern, and the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum has been working for more than a decade to restore its historic 1916 carrousel. Find out how our antique wooden animals are lovingly returned to their original condition in this special lecture and behind-the-scenes tour.
