The Deal

The New England Carousel Museum

When Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein of Brooklyn. N.Y.'s Artistic Carousel Company completed the Bushnell Park Carousel in 1914, they channeled the Coney Island-style of carving that made the boardwalk's rides unique. Adorned with large, wide-eye horses, the carousel also sported big cabbage roses, fish scales, and buckles.

Today, the New England Carousel Museum manages the structure, making it one of the few remaining antique wooden carousels still operating in the country. Set in Bushnell Park, this carousel houses 48 hand-carved wooden horses, 36 jumper horses, 12 stander horses, and two chariots that revolve around a Wurlitzer band organ. The historic piece is one part of the New England Carousel Museum's larger mission to acquire and restore old-fashioned carousels and carousel memorabilia to educate the public on these vintage treasures. The museum also hosts educational programs for families that can include visits from collectors of other pieces of Americana such as quilts, dolls, and perfectly preserved 1890s-era hot dogs.
