Weathervane Wednesday ~ Another Eagle

This is part of an on-going series of photographs of weather vanes in the Nutfield, New Hampshire area (formerly Derry, Londonderry and parts of Hudson, Windham and Manchester).  Some of the weather vanes are historical, some are whimsical, and all are interesting.

Do you know the location of weather vane #44?   Scroll down to the bottom to see the answer!

This very grand eagle weather vane sits on top of a bell tower on a grand residence off Mammoth Road in Windham, New Hampshire, near the Londonderry border.  Last week I featured a whimsical weather vane with two cats on the cupola of an outbuilding on this same property.  Usually eagles weather vanes are found on civic buildings, but this elegant house can carry the theme well!  It was built in 1750 as a mill, and there is a dam, waterwheel and bridge over Beaver Brook in the backyard.

Here is a spectacular video of the Mill House decorated for Christmas, by WMUR, our local TV station:

Weather vane #43 was also located here, atop the carriage house behind the main house:
