The Delaware River and Bay Authority is selling the 1955 Allan Herschell carousel that once called Dollywood home. The authority wanted to sell it locally but is obliged to seek the maximum price, which it hopes to get through an Internet auction on Ebay. The DRBA bought the carousel from the Dollywood theme park for $55,000 about eight years ago.
Read more from The Press of Atlantic City or view the auction on Ebay.

A piece of Dollywood history, Danny....;)
Upon further review, we've decided that this piece of history belongs at.....you guessed it, Cypress Gardens! :)

Hmmm... Allan Hershell Carousels were originally constructed in my fare little city... "home of the carousel".
It'd be nice if the city dipped into it's big red budget & bought that carousel for pernament display at it's museum.

I'd buy it if it weren't for the damn laterals in the backyard.

This is actually the park's original carousel that was removed in 1990. They had the Big 1924 Denzel from 1990-1998, and now they have the Chance one that was built in 1999.
