Carousel at Pullen Park

This fine carousel, produced by Gustav A. Dentzel's Pennsylvania Carousel Company, originally operated at Bloomsbury Park; it was moved to Pullen Park in 1915. The carousel animals are thought to be the work of Salvatore Cernigliaro, master carver of Dentzel's company. Operated by the City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation Department.

Date: Before 1912
