Hampton VA 1 -Antique Hampton Carousel

March 18, 2019 - Hampton's historic carousel, located in Carousel Park and operated by the Hampton History Museum, opens for the 2019 season on April 2.  The former Buckroe Beach carousel is one of the city's most treasured historic assets. Built in 1920, the carousel is completely restored to its original beauty and housed in its own weather-protected pavilion on the city’s downtown waterfront. It is one of only 170 antique wooden merry-go-rounds still existing in the U.S. Handcrafted by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company for the Buckroe Beach Amusement Park, Hampton's Carousel is a whirling tribute to the skill of its creators.
