CHESTERFIELD, MO (KTVI) – The St. Louis Carousel in Faust Park is one of the oldest fully operating carousels in the US.
Manufactured around 1920, it originally was placed at the Forest Park Highlands, an outdoor amusement park. The carousel survived the 1963 fire that destroyed the Highlands and it was later donated to St. Louis County Parks.
In 2010, it was completely dissembled so the main bearing could be replaced.
It attracts more than 100,000 ride-seekers a year.
