Carrousel Chat: “North Tonawanda 101”

Speaker: Peter Trinkwalder, North Tonawanda City Historian



Carrousels are a fascinating part of North Tonawanda’s past, and grew out of several broader features of the city’s history. In this program, get a general history of the town from its early development, including the key role lumber played in shaping its character. Learn also some interesting stories from the various neighborhoods that make up “The Home of the Carrousel.”

The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, operated by the Carousel Society of the Niagara Frontier, is a premier national historic site that fosters an appreciation for the unique heritage of the carousel, band organ, and amusement device industries on the Niagara Frontier for people of all ages, so that it may be preserved, enjoyed and shared with future generations. Through educational, cultural, and recreational programming, visitors will experience the places, people, stories, and artifacts associated with the production of carousels, band organs and amusement devices on the Niagara Frontier.
