The Tuscora Park carousel has been honored with the Historic Carousel Award from the National Carousel Association. Members of the NCA visited the park on July 7th to see the carousel and present the award. The Tuscora Park carousel is the 34th carousel in the nation to be honored by the NCA.
Make Cedar Point Your Summer Destination
The National Carousel Association says the park’s carousel meets the criteria for the award, which includes historic significance, innate quality and character, a proven program of restoration and maintenance, a regular operating schedule, and the support by an organization that will keep it operating for the public.
NCA Director Patrick Wentzel presented a plaque honoring the carousel to a delegation including Mayor of New Philadelphia Joel Day, Assistant Park Director Chase Hostetler, RTY Ride Operations Manager Bud Schoelles, and RTY President Carey Gardner. After the award presentation, NCA members and their family members enjoyed a ride on the carousel to celebrate.
The Tuscora Park carousel was manufactured by the Spillman Engineering Co. in the mid 1920s, likely built for a traveling carnival. The City of New Philadelphia acquired the carousel and the Wurlitzer Band Organ that provides the music in the early 1940s, and it has been a fixture in Tuscora Park ever since.
RTY, Inc., the non-profit organization directed by the New Philadelphia Rotary Club, spearheaded a fundraising effort several years ago that resulted in mechanical and electrical renovation of the carousel. The wood pavilion that houses and protects the carousel was also renovated and repainted.
The NCA Historic Carousel Award plaque will be placed on a column of the pavilion building near the rider entrance.
