An old carousel in North Platte has been given national recognition.

The National Carousel Association recently honored the historic carousel in Cody Park with an award that recognizes its century-old status.

The carousel is one of two operational antique carousels in the state.

The carousel is a 1913 Herschell-Spillman Carousel that has all wooden horses. The city purchased it in the 1950s and it's had minor renovation over the years.

Lyle Minshull, North Platte park supervisor, says the carousel is valuable because of its link to the past.
