The Cass County Caousel, Logansport Indiana

I first heard about the Cass County Dentzel Carousel in Logansport, Indiana about a decade ago as it's one of a handful of very rare (and fun) ring machine carousels in the United States.  In July of 2011 Bond and I headed to Indiana Beach for a two day visit and we decided to work in a drive half an hour east of of the park for a spin on this classic.

The Cass County Dentzel Carousel has several horses that date back to 1885 while the carousel itself dates back to 1902 when it opened in Robison Park in Fort Wayne before moving to Logansport in 1919.

As you can see that not only us amusement park geeks appreciate a classic ride like the Cass County Carousel as it's been declared a National Historic Landmark as well.

Keeping this classic treasure so that it'll still be entertaining riders of all ages for another hundred years and beyond the Cass County Carousel is located in a climate controlled carousel house in Logansport's Riverside Park.
