The Carriage House Location
The Carriage House is next door to the beautiful Kimberly’s Carousel. This handcrafted carousel was constructed all the way in 1917 by famed amusement park developer Allen Herschell. Many of the horses are original and all of them are hand painted. Each one is also named. A local favorite is definitely “Petey the Perch.”
