Home of the Flying Horses Since 1883

It is believed that the Watch Hill Carousel was made in 1867 by Andrew Christian and the Charles W.F. Dare Co. of New York City. Legend has it that a traveling carnival brought the carousel to Watch Hill in 1883 and for some unknown reason abandoned it.

It is said to be the oldest continuously operating carousel in the United States! This treasure has survived disasters for over 135 years including the 1938 Hurricane’s devastating affects on Watch Hill, Rhode Island.

Today, it carries on and thrives as a much-loved summer tradition for children and their families.
