The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program's September "Sandwiching in History" tour will explore the history of the unique Over-the-Jumps Carousel at the Little Rock Zoo. Celebrating a century since its debut in 1924, the Herschell-Spillman “Over-the-Jumps” Carousel is the last one of its kind today. Made by one of the most important historic carousel companies in America as a transportable model for the small-carnival circuit, this carousel is distinguished by its horses that ride along an undulating wooden track. From the 1940s until its closure in 1991, it entertained children at War Memorial Amusement Park. A campaign by Friends of the Carousel, Inc. rescued it from being sold out of state, and after painstaking restoration, this nationally significant carousel reopened to the public in 2007 at the Little Rock Zoo. Sandwiching in History tours are free and open to the public. Join the tour in person or catch the live stream on AHPP's Facebook page.
