Elevated Third Partners With Kit Carson County Carousel


Elevated Third is excited to announce the launch of a new website for the Kit Carson County Carousel.

The Kit Carson County Carousel (KCCC) is a National Historic Landmark that is almost 110 years old. Originally referred to by historians as Philadelphia Toboggan Company Carousel No. 6, the carousel was made as a ride for Elitch Gardens. Kit Carson County purchased the carousel in the 1920s, and it still stands today in Burlington, Colorado.

With the KCCC, Elevated Third designed and developed a new website that emphasizes all the amazing assets of the historical monument. One of the main design features of the site is a beautiful full screen video of the carousel in motion. The site manifests a modern feel, while staying true to the carousel’s classic origins. In addition to serving as an archive of information about the KCCC’s historical significance, the site also features a donation portal which allows visitors to contribute to different elements of the carousel’s maintenance and restoration.

About Kit Carson County Carousel (KCCC): Manufactured in 1905, the Philadelphia Toboggan Company Carousel No. 6 was originally a ride at Elitch Gardens. The carousel was eventually sold to Kit Carson County in 1928 and renamed. Today, the carousel still stands in Burlington, Colorado, and is classified both a National Historic Site and a National Historic Landmark. A painstaking restoration of the carousel took place in 1992, fixing everything from small paint flaws to major water damage.
