This site is so wonderful. This carousel highly resembles the Looff at Crescent Park RI (which has the ring machine and clown target for throwning rings). The horses are so beautiful, true works of art! I look forward to more additions to your site!

I just found your website and you have done a great job. I restored a 1895 Looff, M.S. Stevens has appraisal as one of his standers. I have photos if I may send you a copy. I got this computer for my 80th birthday so I am find out the world of computers. I would like to find the carrousel my stander came from but have not had much luck. Any ideas ? I enjoyed the website!!

Wow seeing the carousel brought many wonderful memories especially when I was in 6th grade we two field trips on the same day visiting the local paper and doing a trivia game around Riverfront park. I remeber, the teacher giving me a ticket to ride the Spokane Carousel. I hope soon I will take my daughter soon to the carousel. Oh say "hi" to the paper eating Goat right next to the carousel. He does a fine job keeping that park clean around the carousel.

I must have seen the carousel at Nat Park, but the first time I really remember seeing it is in the early 1970s. I was part of a group of elementary students writing a book to raise money to restore the carousel. We traveled out to Fairchild AFB to view a bunch of dusty and neglected horses piled in an old warehouse. I only recall part of one line from the book: "a bunch of dilapidated old horses". To see the carousel now gives me even more respect for the work that went into its restoration and the value of this treasure.

Thanks so much for this website!!! We miss everyone in Spokane, but especially we miss hearing the sweet sound of the carrousel. Thanks for the memories!

It's the biggest and greatest carousel we have ever had the pleasure of riding. The horses look great and well cared for. Thank you Bette Largent and friends for your untiring dedication in taking such good care of it for future generations to enjoy. It's truly a treasure.
