Weathervane Wednesday ~ See a Saw?

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.   Today's weathervane is in in Hampton, New Hampshire, where I often go to do genealogical research.

Do you know the location of weathervane #54?   Scroll down to see the answer.

Today's weathervane can be found on top of the barn at the Tuck Museum, operated by the Hampton Historical Society.  It is a very original design for a weathervane, looking like a life size hand saw.  This barn was moved from the Taylor Leavitt house on Lafayette Road and reassembled at the museum in 2007.  There are photos of the reassembly process at the Hampton Historical Society website.  The barn was built about 1796.
