The former carousel from Buckroe Beach Amusement Park, Hampton, VA. Restored and now housed in downtown Hampton, VA, just outside the Virginia Air and Space Museum. One of only a handful of remaining with hand carved wooden carousel horses and chariots.

Silver Blue, who remembers when the carousel WAS at Buckroe Beach….
