    • The Cass County Carousel has been a part of our community since 1919. The Carousel was named a National Historic Landmark in 1987, making it the only one in Cass County. The 43 animals are unique and range in age. All the animals are handcarved. The Carousel was originally placed at Spencer Park from 1919 to 1949. It then moved to the Old Carousel Building at Riverside Park until it moved to it’s permanent home in 1995.
    • The Carousel is available for private rentals. Commemorative bricks and stones are also available. Unique gifts are available at the Carousel souvenir booth. Call the Carousel office for more details at 574-753-8725.
