Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Schooner

Every Wednesday for more than two years  I've been posting photographs of weather vanes 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 weather vanes. Today's weather vane can be found somewhere on New Hampshire's seacoast. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weathervane #120? Scroll down to see the answer....




Today's weather vane was seen above a garage on a private residence in New Castle, New Hampshire.  This is a small town on an island in Portsmouth Harbor, and this home was only a block from the waterfront. This weather vane is three dimensional and features a schooner complete with rigging and sails.  Most of the homes in this neighborhood date from the 1700s, and it may have been the home of a mariner or fisherman at one time in it's history.
