Weathervane Wednesday ~ An old church with a new congregation

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! If you know an interesting or historical weathervane, please let me know.

Today's weather vane is from New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #206?  Scroll down to see the answer!

Today's weather vane is on the steeple above the Faith Bridge Church at 301 South Main Street, Manchester, New Hampshire.   This old, gilded weather vane is a banner style, often seen on churches.  This congregation was founded in 2012 and is a blend of two former churches, the South Main Street Church (founded more than 100 years ago) and the newer Grace Haven Baptist, both located on the West Side of Manchester.

This building is the former South Main Congregational Church, which was built in 1917, but there had been a Congregational church here at this spot long before that.  This weather vane probably dates from the reconstructed building project in 1917.
