Weathervane Wednesday ~ on a Church

I've been photographing the weather vanes in the historic area of Nutfield, New Hampshire.  Nutfield used to be where Derry and Londonderry are located today, but also covered Windham and parts of Hudson and Manchester, New Hampshire.  This is my first photograph of a weather vane in Windham.

Do you know the location of weather vane #36?  Scroll down to see the answer!

This banneret style weather vane is located on top of the steeple at the Windham Presbyterian Church.  This style of weather vane can also be seen on church steeples in Londonderry and Derry.  This church has been located at the historic Windham common for over 175 years.  For more information see  “History of Windham in New Hampshire, 1719 to 1883” by L.A. Morrison, and its supplement, “Rural Oasis, 1883 to 1975”, researched and written by the Town History Committee.
