Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Presidential Library

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 seen in in a National Historic Site, somewhere in Massachusetts. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #124? Scroll down to see the answer....







When you visit the Adams National Park in Quincy, Massachusetts, you are seeing the homes of TWO presidents!  The first is the home where John Adams raised his son, John Quincy Adams, and the second is the larger estate home where John Adams retired, and where his son, John Quincy Adams, built the Stone library.  It holds over 14,000 volumes of books, and was designed to be fireproof and separate from the wooden house known as "Peacefield".  It was built in 1870 after a request in John Quincy Adams's will,  in a medieval style, different from the very New England style farmhouse and estate.
