Wally the Stegosaurus

Fiberglass dinosaur outside the Berkshire Museum. According to the sign near the statue, "Wally was the second Stegosaurus from the mold made by the Louis Paul Jonas Studios of Hudson, New York (The first went to the New York World's Fair in 1963 for the 1964 opening). Wally spent 30 years on the grounds of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History before coming to the Berkshire Museum in 1997." I went to Sinclair Dinoland at the World's Fair, and it's nice to see a remnant of it (albeit a 2nd generation copy) still around.

[Dean Jeffrey, 09/02/2009]

When Wally was in Cleveland he was known as "Steggie." He was shipped to Pittsfield when Cleveland commissioned a new Stegosaurus sculpture.
