Who We Are
History of the district
In 1991 the Carrousel District became home to the first new, hand-carved indoor wooden carrousel built in the USA since the early 1930s. This breathtaking carrousel has 52 wooden animals and two chariots. With classic circus colors, mirrors, gilded ornaments, sprightly pump organ music, and wood-carved creatures childhood memories come flooding back.
In the Carrousel District, you will find beautifully restored Victorian-age buildings with tin ceilings, solid oak floors, brass lighting, ornate iron fencing, secluded courtyards and the feel of yesteryear.
There are several charming restaurants to choose from in the immediate area surrounding the Carrousel District. Have lunch in a 40s-style diner or enjoy the intimate setting of a coffee shop-style eatery. Experience authentic Greek dishes and pastries or enjoy pizza at Two Cousin's. Relax in the nostalgic atmosphere while dining outside during the warm summer months and don't forget to let the children play at the Little Buckeye Children's Museum!
