Milford, Delaware: Big Amish Man Statue

Beloved local landmark, a 20-foot-tall statue of an Amish Man. He's moved around, promoted pancakes, then used cars, and since 2017 he's been in Milford in front of a graphics studio.

Amish Muffler Man at Shirey's Auto sales. I spoke with the owner of the auto lot about the giant's history, where he got it, etc. It's in excellent condition. Right on Route 1 on the way to the beach.

The Amish Giant isn't a reconfigured Muffler Man, but he is similar in stature.

A 15-foot-tall statue of an Amish man, arm raised in a greeting, hand extended for a handshake, stands upon a concrete pedestal overlooking Route 1 in Milford, out in front of Shirey's Auto Sales. I encountered him on the way to Ocean City, Maryland.

The Amish Man

Shirey's Car Sales has moved the 20-foot-tall Muffler Man/Amish Man to their location just south of Frederica. He is made of fiberglass and weighs 400 pounds. He is dressed with a black hat, beard, suspenders, and pants with a blue shirt. He originally stood in front of the Dutch Pantry House on US 13 in Dover.

[Pam, 07/02/2013]

The appeal of a Giant Amish Man is so strong that Shirey's Car Sales has wisely resisted the urge to convert him into a Giant Car Salesman. July 2013: Photo added.
