I post a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday. This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe. Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting. Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too! If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.
Today's weather vane was photographed in New Hampshire.
Do you know the location of weathervane post #292? Scroll down to find the answer.
In November 1838 the new meeting house was completed. There was a new bell paid for by the sale of the scrap metal of the old bell. There is no mention in the town history about the cuurrent weathervane which currently adorns the steeple of the church.
