The Buffalo Carousel Committee has big plans — REALLY BIG — for the historic Cowboy Indian Carousel. They have purchased the old Buetler’s building on Lobban and plan to move the Carousel there and build a center for the arts, community events and education around it. They have just recently signed a contract to purchase the building from Margi Schroth of the HF Bar who very generously immediately donated back part of the purchase price.
