The Class Menagerie

Record #:
In 1912, Carolina Power and Light originally bought the carousel for $12,000 for the Bloomsbury Park at the end of the trolley line. In 1921 when Bloomsbury Park closed down, the City of Raleigh bought the carousel for $1,200 and moved it to Pullen Park. Now the Raleigh Fine Arts Society and the Raleigh Community of Artists, with the help of the Raleigh City Council, are raising funding to restore the Gustave Dentzel carousel.
