What a perfect opportunity to feature the Albany, Oregon Historical Carousel and Museum!
The Albany Carousel has a 1909 Dentzel mechanism, donated by the great-grandson of Gustav Dentzel, the founder of Dentzel Carousel Corporation.
This carousel is a menagerie style unit with 52 animals ranging from a seven foot plus tall giraffe, dogs, cats, zebras, unicorns, dragons, to lions, tigers, and bears.
All the animals are hand-carved and painted by volunteers using designs created by individuals who sponsor the particular animal. https://albanycarousel.com/about/
