Once Around Is Never Enough: The Story of the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum

About half of the antique carousels left in the United States were made by the Herschell companies of North Tonawanda, New York. This documentary chronicles the ups, downs, and around-and-arounds of the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, as its staff pieces together the fascinating history of the people who built everyman’s carousel.
