Boston Common CarouselEnjoy an old-fashioned carousel ride on the Boston Common from mid-April to the end of October. The 20-seat carousel features horses, animals, a frog, and a teacup.

History of the Carousel:
Built in 1947 by the Allan Herschell Company of North Tonawanda, NY. The Allan Herschell Company, the most prolific maker of carousels, specialized in producing portable machines which could be used by traveling carnival operators.

The Company produced over 3,000 hand carved wooden carousels and out-produced all of its rivals in the carousel industry.

Beginning in 1873, Allan Herschell was a partner in several companies manufacturing carousels. In 1915 he started the Allan Herschell Company which operated independently until it was sold in the early 1970ís to a rival maker of amusement rides.

A museum exists in the original manufacturing facility in North Tonawanda.
