Weathervane Wednesday - A very old landmark

This week's weather vane is very old, and can be seen on the town website   It is located in a very central location.  If you live in Lononderry you have passed it many times.

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 #31?

This old weathervane is located on the top of the Londonderry Presbyterian Church, on the town common, at the intersection of Pillsbury and Mammoth Roads.  The Presbyterian Church here originated in 1719 with the congregation Rev. James MacGregor gathered on the shores of Beaver Lake, and preached under the nut tree.   A church was built in what is now Derry, New Hampshire and is now the First Church in East Derry.  There was a schism in 1740, and the church divided into an East Parish and a West Parish (which is now the town of Londonderry).  The current Presbyterian church building in Londonderry was built in 1837.
