What a beautiful picture and what wonderful memories I have riding the horses and trying for the brass ring. I got it sometimes,too.

My brother and sister rode the horses also my daughter and grandson.

We were members of Deacon Grange when the horses were repainted. What a beautiful job the artists did. We as many others contributed to the restoration as well as the new building which keeps it completely under cover.

I live in San Benito TX. It has been a long time since I have heard the music and felt the thrill of 'our' Carousel. I was telling my friend about the merry-go-round and decided to look it up.

Thank you Logansport for keeping this part of history intact.

I rode this many times and often caught the brass ring. It is one of my best memories of my childhood in Logansport.

I loved this carousel! I remember my great-grandparents would drive me down to Riverside and buy me four tickets. I would saddle myself up, wave like crazy, and then...the music would start, and the horses would go up and down. I always stretched as far as I could to catch that gold ring...remember that? It felt like winning a million dollars when I Lady Luck was on my side. I miss this place very much.

All the years I was growing up in Logan, I lived near the Jones family who had their house on 21st Street. They operated the carrousel for all the years I lived there and then some.
After I returned home from nearly a year in the hospital,and was strong enolugh to venture out, I was taken to the carrousel as I had wished asll during my hospital stay. The Jone's honored my occzssion by deliberately setting up
the riing-pull on each of my rides so I could be the one who grabbed the brass ring.
That was, of course, th ehighlight of any of the many the many years I would go to Spencer Park and ride the carousel.
All members of the Jones family were wonderful people.
