Kiddieland [gone]
Melrose Park, IL
The Kiddieland Carousel is a PTC design (#72), built in 1925. Kiddieland had other vintage rides as well. The amusement park closed in 2009 and the rides were auctioned off. This carousel was saved intact and is now in storage. It's not known where it will be installed but there is talk of Waterbury, CT or Chicago. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.
