The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum in North Tonawanda has a new director.
Longtime director Rae Proefrock is stepping down. She is succeeded by Megan Hahin, the former education director who begins her new job Saturday.
Proefrock will remain on the Carousel Society of the Niagara Frontier's board of trustees.
The museum celebrates North Tonawanda's history as a center of carousel building in the early 20th century, and is a popular attraction for school children and other visitors.
