Edgewood Park
also known as Indian Park (to 1905)
Shamokin, Northumberland County, PA
Edgewood Park was the amusement park in the area at the time when it was operating. All of the other parks were smaller, except for maybe Rolling Green Park.

The Carousel is rumored to have eventually moved to Doodlebug Park (defunct) and if so, was eventually broken up.
