Weathervane Wednesday ~ Above the store at a popular apple orchard...

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 the Merrimack Valley, in Massachusetts.

Do you know the location of weather vane #207?  Scroll down to see the answer!

Today's weathervane was photographed above the store at Mann Orchard in Methuen, Massachusetts.   The Mann family has been farming in Methuen since 1877.  During the 1950s they started selling apple pies.  In the 1970s the Manns moved to a location at 65 Pleasant Valley Street and expanded the farm stand.   This business grew so big that recently they moved to this larger location at 27 Pleasant Valley Street.  The Fitzgerald family, descendants of the original Mann family, still run the operation.
