About BurlingtonThe town began as a maintenance and repair community for the North Carolina Railroad; the 1880 engine house now serves as a train station and office complex.

The 76-acre City Park, at South Church Street and Overbrook Road, contains a 1910 Dentzel Menagerie Carousel. Known for their detail and intricate carvings, only 14 such carousels still exist worldwide. In addition to 26 horses, the hand-carved animals include a lion, tiger, giraffe and reindeer, four pigs, rabbits, ostriches and cats. The carousel operates seasonally and hours vary; phone (336) 222-5030.
