62 years after George Washington’s death saw the start of the
Civil War. Alexandria was the site of some of the first fatalities of the
bloody conflict and PBS’ Mercy Street gives us a peek at what
might have happened in our great Old Town.

Dolle’s Candy – Rehoboth Beach

For nearly a century, Dolle’s has been serving up caramel corn and salt water taffy. Dolle’s began in 1926 and moved to its present location in 1927. During the storm of 1962, the 3,500 pound taffy machine fell through the floor and into the sand below. The machine was rescued and is still in use today. Before air conditioning, candy shops would make chocolate only in the fall, winter or spring and then fall back on brittles, caramel corn and other treats in the summertime. Thankfully, you can buy delicious chocolate all summer at Dolle’s but buying this picture will give you joy without all the calories!
