Iconic Dolles sign makes its way back to greet folks into Rehoboth
REHOBOTH, Del.- Visitors coming to the city will once again be greeted by the iconic Dolles Salt water Taffy sign, as it has new home on the canal side of the Rehoboth Beach History Museum.
“I hope the sign continues to be an iconic representation of the town,” Nancy Alexander, Director of the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society and Museum,” said.
The sign was taken down in December near the boardwalk, but the museum said once it found out about the news they wanted to bring the sign to their place. Through generous donations and permission from the city, the installation of the sign was able to happen Wednesday and museum officials couldn’t be happier. “Our job is to preserve the history and celebrate the history of our beautiful city by the sea and the with all of the donors coming through and everybody posting about it it tells us that we are doing our job very well and this is something that people are really very happy about,” Alexander said.
More than 250 donors contributed more than $35,000 to help bring the sign to the museum.
Wednesday, the museum hosted a brief ceremony to welcome the sign to its new location.
