Cafesjian Carousel

The Cafesjian Carousel is located at Como Park in St. Paul Minnesota. It is PTC #33 built by the Philadelphia Tobogan Company (PTC) and installed at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds in 1914. It moved to its current location in 2000 and underwent a complete restoration.

There are 68 horses on this carousel. The one pictured to the right is the only "paint."

The Cafesjian Carousel is operated by a non-profit group and is staffed by one full time person and 90-100 volenteers.

I am interested in learning of other PTC carousels that are still around, if you know of one let me know.
