Today's weather vane was photographed in Connecticut.
Do you know the location of weathervane post #274? Scroll down to find the answer.
This quill weathervane was photographed at the Founders Hall building at the Loomis Chaffee prep school in Windsor, Connecticut. I never would have seen this building and it's weathervane except for the fact that we were searching for the Loomis homestead of my 10th great grandfather, Joseph Loomis. We found his homestead, still standing, right next to Founders Hall.
I have also seen quill weather vanes at other schools, most notably at the former Adams Female Academy in Derry, New Hampshire. It's a very appropriate weather vane for a school building. This one is very simple, but noticeable from a great distance.
