Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Former Schoolhouse

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

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #241?  Scroll down to see the answer...

This building opposite the Amherst, New Hampshire common, on the corner of School and Middle Streets,  was known as the Brick School.  It was a public schoolhouse from 1854 until 1967.  It is now a private residence.  There are two front doors, formerly used by the boys and the girls.
