|This Amish Man, aka The Big Man, stood in front of Shirey's Car Sales. The statue appeared to have been the work of Rod Shutt. This 20 foot tall fiberglass statue was originally installed at a Dempsey's Diner in New Castle, DE. When Dempsey's began installing Dutch Boy statues, this statue wound up at Perry's Pantry in Dover, DE. Perry's was later known as the Country Pantry. In 2000, the statue was moved to Shirey's Car Sales. In 2003, it was knocked over by a hurricane. It was then repaired and reinstalled. The photos above are from 2005. The statue's shirt was later painted blue. In 2007, the statue was taken down and put into storage in Dover. In 2011, it was reinstalled at Shirey's Dover location. In 2013, the statue was moved back to Shirey's Milford location. In 2016, the statue was donated to the owner of Xtreme Graphix who used to work at Shirey's. The statue is being repainted to the original red and black color scheme and will be installed in front of Extreme Graphix in 2017. For more, see this website. [map]|
