About: Dentzel Carousel Company headquarters is in Port Townsend, WA. Carouselmaking has occupied the Dentzel family since the early 1800's. One of America's first carousels was built by Michael Dentzel and his sons in Germany. Michael sent his sons with the carousel to Philidelphia in the 1850's. The Dentzel Carousel Company flourished until William H. Dentzel 1 died in 1928. The company was revived in the 1960's by William H. Dentzel 2 who produced small fiberglass carousels then carried on from the 1990's by William H. Dentzel 3 who still makes small wooden carousels and other animated rides.
