Weathervane Wednesday ~ Above the Town Hall

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 New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #345?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This weathervane is located above the clock tower of the New Boston, New Hampshire Town Hall.  This scrollwork weathervane was placed here in 1983, it originally was installed on the bell tower of the New Boston High school in 1908.  The old school used to stand across the street (where the fire station is now located), but it was destroyed in the great fire of 1887.   You can read more about this weathervane and this story of its relocation at the link below from the New Boston Historical Society.

This weathervane is located next door to the Old Engine House which also has a historic weathervane.  You can read about both of these weathervanes, and more in New Boston, at this link:

I featured the Old Engine House weathervane last week at this link:

  1. I recognize these buildings - I pass by them every year on my way to Thanksgiving dinner at my brother's house in next-door Francestown. Beautiful part of New Hampshire!

  2. Beautiful weathervane and charming building. I miss all that kind of architecture (living in Arizona)!
