The Carousels of Monarch Park

By William L. Passauer; first carousel material by Barbara Fahs Charles; and an article by Rol and Jo Summit.

From our search that began in 2009 we found out very little of the two Monarch Park carousels until January of 2012. Then, tanks to Dave Anderton, President of the Oil City Heritage Society, we started a successful collaboration with Rol and Jo Summit and Barbara Fahs Charles of The National Carousel Association’s (NCA).  The results were two articles published in the association’s Summer 2012 edition of the "Merry-Go-Roundup" magazine.  One article by this author, William L. Passauer and another by Rol and Jo Summit.  The half year collaboration with the NCA and the two articles are the basis for this section of the Monarch Park website.  My sincere thanks go to Dave Anderton, Rol & Jo Summit,  Barbara Fahs Charles, and Daniel Robinson, Editor of "The Merry-Go_Roundup".
