Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Large Weathercock

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly.  I started by publishing weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes all across New England.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting. Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weather vanes, too!

Today's weather vane is from a town in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #185? Scroll down to see the answer!

Today's weathervane was spotted on a closed farm stand or nursery seen alongside Hooksett Road (Route 28) in Hooksett, New Hampshire.  It is a large two dimensional rooster, which goes along with the barnlike look of this building.  The rooster vane is quite large, and it has weathered to a nice patina.  This building is on Route 28, a popular north-south trek along the Merrimack River, and advertising art like this is usually large and bold to attract customers.

Does anyone know the history of this building?
