Dolly Dimples

The giant girl statue in Silver Creek, NY, is named "Dolly Dimples". I grew up there and saw that statue my whole life. Just thought you would like to know her name. She has been there for the 30 years I've been in the area. I think she came from a drive in restaurant down the road. It used to be called Pat's Drive Inn, but that was before my time. The business that has her now is Valvo's candy. They make candy and concrete and composite statues. They have the best sponge candy in the world! –Letter via email
