Classic carousel returning to Coeur d'Alene

A little piece of history is coming back home to Coeur d'Alene. A hand carved carousel from the 1920's that used to sit in downtown Coeur d'Alene is now going back to downtown.

Read more and see video from KREM/Spokane.

It's great that this machine is going home. Even better that it's wanted. The Perron's Museum has a commercial arm, Historic Carousels Inc. They had antique machines running in malls all across the US. Most of these malls were bought by Westfield, who saw what kind of business these little machines did. When the leases came up for renewal, they weren't, Westfield had placed an order for twenty-five double decker carousels from Chance to replace them and operates them through a subsidary company.

The reason that I bring this up is that there are still a number of these former mall machines that are available (listed at Brass Ring Entertainment) that need good homes.
