The carousel is located in front of the popular Ella's Deli & Ice Cream Parlor. The carousel, according to the National Carousel Association, has an antique frame with replacement Dentzel style scenery from about 1980. The history of this carousel is unknown. Ella's Deli opened at this location in 1976.
