Tilt-A-Whirl Project in Faribault on AM Minnesota 3-7-2014
Two Faribault women involved in a project to keep alive the Tilt-A-Whirl legacy in the community will be guests. Tammy Schlueter and Peggy Keilen will stop by the KDHL studios to discuss their efforts. The Tilt-A-Whirl was invented by Herb Sellner of Faribault in 1926. He built the first 14 rides in his basement and in 1927 opened Sellner Manufacturing in Faribault. The ride debuted at the Minnesota State Fair. In 2011 Larson International of Plainview, Texas bought the company.
