Last Whirligig Makes it to Downtown Wilson

March 21, 2017

The last whirligig to be moved from Vollis Simpson’s pasture has made its way to downtown Wilson. The whirligig features horses pulling a wagon. When it’s restored, the horses will gallop and their ears will move back and forth, Logan said. The rider will wave, and the wagon wheels will turn. “You’ll see a lot of activity there this spring, summer and early fall,”  said Kimberly Van Dyk, planning and community revitalization director. The park is a partnership between Wilson Downtown Development Corporation, Wilson Downtown Properties, City of Wilson and the North Carolina Arts Council.
