Santa Barbara Carousel

The Allan Herschell 3-Abreast Carousel is a carousel built in 1916 by the Allan Herschell Company. It is located in Chase Palm Park, a waterfront park in Santa Barbara, California. The carousel features 35 hand-carved jumping wooden horses and two hand-carved chariots which serve as benches. The carousel is one of only four large carousels made by the Allan Herschell Company between 1915 and 1927; in addition, the horses on the outer rim feature gentle faces and detailed, deep woodwork, making them a rarity among the company's designs. After likely operating in an amusement park in the eastern United States, the carousel moved to Seaport Village in San Diego; it began operating at its current location in 1999.The carousel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
