Roseneath Carousel Restoration

Carousel RestorationSince 1993 I have been involved with carousel horses both in restoration and in creating new ones. Since the reopening of the carousel in 1993 due to the horses being housed in an unheated building they have suffered damage over the years. My recent involvement is to repair some of these problems.

In 1986 The Roseneath Carousel Restoration committee undertook a massive fund raising to completly retore their carousel built by C.W.Parker in 1906 .The carousel has 40 horses and 2 boats plus a 1934 Wurlitzer Military Band organ complete with paper rolls which ushers out the nostalgic music. Please visit this hidden gem in the village of Roseneath at the fair grounds. For only $3.00 you can have an amazing ride! www.roseneathcarousel.com

Along with artist/carver Constantin VonValdburg I have helped with the creation of carousel horses for two rides “The Canadian Ride“ and “The Wild West“ both for Conklin. We also did murals on circus wagons and restored organ facades.
