CLEVELAND, Ohio — A big piece of Northeast Ohio history spun back to life Saturday.

Forty-five years after Euclid Beach State Park closed, its grand carousel once again took visitors for a ride Saturday at Western Reserve Historical Society.

The carousel came back to Cleveland in 1997 after going on the auction block. The historical society and other groups then raised money and partnered with a Mansfield company to restore the horses and get the carousel back in working order.

They even built a pavilion to house it.

The carousel will open to the public Sunday at noon.
