The carousel resides in Riverside Park, which is located in the central part of the town on the banks of the Eel River. While on the carousel you can still try to grab the brass ring, which today serves as the basis of the local economic-development slogan “Logansport – Cass County: Grab the brass ring”. The Carousel is on the National Register of historic places and is a national landmark.
