Jersey Shore Carousel History

A Little piece of Jersey Shore History.
A celebration was held for the Floyd Moreland Carousel's 100th Birthday at Casino Pier in Seaside Heights this week. The Carousel is full of history with horses that were carved in 1890 a true 146 WURLITZER ORGAN that was restored back in 2000.
Maintained over the years Carousel enthusiast have always believed that a Carousel without working band organ is like a lyric without a tune.
This Beautiful Piece of history provides every child and kid at heart with a historic experience in every turn.

The merry-go-round was first installed at Burlington Island Park along the Delaware River. It was fixed after sustaining some damage in a fire in 1928 and moved to the Jersey shore in 1932
