A Dear Friend That Will Be Missed and Remembered

Will Morton, friend and conservator to the Kit Carson County Carousel passed away this week.

Will began his carousel restoration odyssey with the “Jewel of American Carousels”, the Kit Carson County Carousel in 1978. He led the idea of preserving carousels as “works of art”. His influence will live on in every treasure he helped restore, most certainly with PTC No. 6.

"I'd like to look down from some place beyond fifty years from now and feel that I'm being complimented by the restorer who is then at work, saying the man who did this in the first place did a good job and I'm pleased with what he did." - Will Morton, 1986
