Ernie Griffin wanted to bring a carousel to Wilmore, Kansas and he and he wife Christy located this carousel in 2013. It had been built in Venice, Italy about 10 years earlier and had been used in shopping malls, prior to being stored in a warehouse. The carousel sits on municipal property and the carousel and the pad on which it sits were built by the Griffins with the help of their neighbors.

The Griffins split their year between Wilmore and San Diego, California, spending the Fall and late spring in Kansas. The Wilmore Carousel doesn't have regular hours. Folk pull up and honk their horn. If available, the Griffins or a neighbor come out to open and operate the carousel. At no charge. This is a wonderful gift to the public!


There are 13 horses on the Wilmore Carrousel
