Starke County Historical Society loans carousel horse to Library

A 1920 German antique Carousel Horse now looks down upon children in the Henry F. Schricker Public Library.   Fred and Judy Parker from Boca Raton, Florida, formerly from Starke County, had donated this beautiful horse to the Starke County Museum a few years ago.   It has been on display at the Museum, waiting for a special place worthy of its antique value.   Because of space limitations at the Museum, the Board of Directors began looking for another location in the community where it could be properly displayed.  With the building of the new children's area in the Library in Knox, they wondered if it might be displayed there.  Dave Bullock, a Library board member, consulting with Sheila Urwiler, Librarian for the Henry F. Schricker Library, and with the help of his son, Wesley, built a mount for it.   The Carousel Horse is now on loan to the Library and beautifully displayed above the reference desk in the library's new children's addition.
