After decades of rest, the former Euclid Beach Park’s restored carousel will be unveiled at the Western Reserve Historical Society (WRHS) this November.

The carousel, which ran in the Collinwood neighborhood of Cleveland from 1910 to 1969, will be displayed in a glass pavilion within WRHS. The pavilion’s development is a separate endeavor of the Euclid Beach Park Carousel Society and fits with Phase 1 of the History Center Transformation Project. Meanwhile, the carousel horses are already fully restored and part of the WRHS collection.

However, the rest of the carousel is currently being restored by Carousel Works in Mansfield, Ohio. It will feature a large automated music box playing as it runs. Once the carousel is working again, it will be one of the few in Cleveland, making it a valuable attraction for WRHS.

The current date people are expected to be able to ride the carousel, according to WRHS, is Nov. 22.
