Kingsport Carousel Project

Kingsport-Carousel-Logo2-color

The goal of the Kingsport Carousel Project is to build and operate a menagerie-style carousel featuring all hand-carved wooden animals and chariots on a refurbished machine that is totally unique and iconic to Kingsport.

The machine (frame) is a 1956 3-row Herschell designed for 32 animals and 2 chariots.  The frame was a gift to the Kingsport Carousel Project by the Beardsley Zoo of Bridgeport, CT. 

The carousel animals include traditional horses as well as wild animals, a dragon and a unicorn.  The carousel will be housed in an enclosed structure for year-round operation, with a gift shop and a demonstration carving studio.

It will be located in the vicinity of the Kingsport Farmers Market.
