A National Historic Landmark, this is the nation's oldest continuously operating merry-go-round. Handcrafted in 1876 (the horses have real horsehair and glass eyes), the ride gives children a taste of entertainment from an era before smartphones.

Put in some pictures of the carousel. Listen to the music & see it turn. Don't keep it a secret. Go to the Spokane Washington Carousel Site. Sign the guest book, leave a message, take a tour of the carousel. You want young people to know how great it is to ride a horse not made of fiberglass. Feel the excitment as the music starts and the carousel starts. Were it not for carousel restorers they would go the way of some wildlife. Extinct is
forever. No ride will ever replace the carousel. There has to be a new generation of restorers and people who care. I rode the Coney Island carousels before I could walk. And I own 1 Dare horse and only 1 because I feel they should be on working carousels. And I am truly excited that my only carousel horse is from the oldest carousel company. The Carousel gets all 5*; the site needs work. Promote the carousel, all of them. That's what its about. You can't do that without pictures. Thanks for listening.
