The carousel's new home, the former Pottstown Metal Weld Building was purchased by the Borough of Pottstown. The property, across from Memorial Park, was purchased utilizing Montgomery County Open Space funds. The carousel group is leasing the property for $1/year and is renovating and expanding the building to house its historic Philadelphia Toboggan Company Carousel.
 

The Carousel At Pottstown was officially incorporated October 10, 2000 and received 501©3 status from the IRS as a non-profit charitable organization.
