Weathervane Wednesday ~ Behind the Tavern

I post another in 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 Massachusetts.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #343?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This simple black arrow weathervane is affixed to the chimney of an outbuilding behind the Bullard Tavern on the village common of Old Sturbridge Village, a living history museum and re-created village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.  This weathervane is difficult to see because it is behind the tavern.  It is best viewed from the garden of the Salem Towne House.

This tavern was not moved here from another location, but it was built in 1947 as a restaurant.  Upstairs recreates a tavern with a barroom, and downstairs is now a cafeteria and restrooms. It is one of the few reproduction buildings at Old Sturbridge Village.
