15 years of work culminates with carousel opening


August 15, 2017

After years of preparation, the Albany Historic Carousel and Museum opened Tuesday, Aug. 15, at the corner of 1st Avenue SW and Washington Street SW.

The completion of the 22,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility was celebrated with a ribbon cutting event, which acknowledged and thanked the volunteers who made the facility happen and to officially “open” the Carousel..

“This is not just about the Carousel,” said Carl Baker, lead engineer of the mechanism. “It’s about the community – so many people working together - that’s what this Carousel is all about!”
