Weathervane Wednesday ~ An Historic Old Hall

Every Wednesday for almost a year and half I've been posting photographs of weathervanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located).  Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weathervanes.  Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #71?  Scroll down to see the answer.

Today's weather vane is located on top of the steeple of historic Union Hall on Anderson Road in Windham, New Hampshire, not too far from the Londonderry border and Beaver Brook.  This hall was built in 1880 to help the residents living outside of the center of town.  According to the Windham Historical Society website "it served the literary, social and religious needs" of the population in this end of Windham. It was built by funding shares from local inhabitants. It is still a popular spot for small meetings and an annual Halloween Haunted House event.
