-- Created to honor the 1871 carousel patented by William Schneider of Davenport, Iowa, considered the official inventor of the modern carousel according to the U.S. patent office. Of the hundreds (if not into the thousands) of beautiful wooden carousels carved in the late 1800s and early 1900s, there are maybe 200 or so of these original American treasures in operation today. It's a great time to get out and ride and support your local carousel even if it is not a turn-of-the-century antique. Source

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
