The Chesapeake Chesapeake Carousel is believed to have been constructed by
Gustav Dentzel at the turn of the century. The carousel operated at
Chesapeake Beach through 1972. Restoration has been ongoing since its
acquisition by M-NCPPC in 1974; it was re-opened to the public here in July
1977. The carousel is open seasonally, and provides delightful experiences
for the young and the young-at-heart.
