Weathervane Wednesday - A Replacement Horse!


I'm nearing the end of this series.  There are only so many weathervanes in the Nutfield area (Londonderry and Derry, New Hampshire).    This is one of the last I will be posting in the next two months on Wednesdays.

As a challenge, I publish the locations at the bottom of the post so you can see the photo first.  After you guess you can scroll down to the bottom to see the location.

Do you know the location of weather vane #30?



This weathervane is located at the Robie House, which is now an office building on Mammoth Road, just north of the crossroad with Nashua Road (Rt. 102).   This black running horse is a replacement for the original copper weathervane, which was auctioned off when the Robie House was sold for commercial development.
