The Fall River Carousel at Battleship Cove is an antique wooden ride from the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, one of the oldest existing roller coaster manufacturing companies in the world.
Carousel # 54, as it was called, was built around 1919 during the "Golden Age" of wooden carousels. The ride was shipped from Pennsylvania to North Dartmouth, Massachusetts' Lincoln Park in 1920 and resided there until the park closed in 1987. During its heyday, Lincoln Park attracted many celebrities of the time, including Eleanor Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.
Upon the park closing, and knowing the carousel needed a home, then mayor, Daniel Bogan and the community of Fall River rallied together to raise $250,000.00 to refurbish her and bring her to Battleship Cove in 1991.
