    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.
