One More Ride On the Merry-Go-Round.

By Silver Blue

carousel

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.

For slightly more information, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckroe_Beach,_Hampton,_Virginia

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