Lark Toys - Carousel with class
In 1988, Donn began to design a carousel, “the largest toy I could make,” he says. Over a period of nine years, Tim Monson (LARK’s head toymaker) blocked-up the wood; Bill Stark (a local artisan) carved the animals; and LARK artist Mary Eversman hand-stained them. Many visitors had the opportunity to watch the carousel in process. Finally, in 1997, it was ready to begin delighting riders from around the world.
The scenic 18-hole miniature golf course was added a few years later, offering outdoor recreational fun. Sarah, a gifted and passionate gardener, landscaped the course and the LARK property with exquisite flowers and plants.
