Today's weathervane is from New Hampshire.
Do you know the location of weather vane #219? Scroll down to see the answer!
Today's weather vane was photographed in Hampton, New Hampshire. You can see this weathervane from the causeway leaving Hampton Beach going west on Route 101. The Saint James Masonic Lodge is located on a parallel street, at 77 Tide Mill Road.
This weathervane is the typical mason's square and compass you see used everywhere in Masonic symbology. These are the tools of the stone mason. The letter "G" inside the square and compass stands for both "God" and "Geometry". I've seen this symbol on Masonic halls, on Masonic insignia and jewelry, and on gravestones. I'm sure you've seen it, too, but this is the first time I've seen it on a weathervane!
