Century-old Greenfield Village carousel gets touched up

A Greenfield Village carousel is receiving some TLC more than a century in the making.

That's because the historic piece of amusement has been around since 1913.

Julie Fournier, a local artist from Hazel Park isn't just giving the set pieces a new coat of paint. Instead, she's committing hours of research to better understand the aesthetic of what the animals looked like at the time it was built.

If some of the details weren't covered by paint when former employees had touched it up, then they've been worn away by the thousands of individuals who have sat on them.

Greenfield Village, and the 106 year old carousel will open April 13.
