Weathervane Wednesday ~ An Old Engine House

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 #344?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This gilded scrollwork weathervane is on the cupola above the Old Engine House in New Boston, New Hampshire.  The historic, yellow building now serves as the town recreation department office.  This is a great location to see three weathervanes at one time!  Right next door is a weathervane above the town hall, and there is also a weathervane above the church across the street.  Stay tuned, because I'll be featuring those weathervanes for the next few Wednesdays.

This weathervane is not original to the building.  It was replaced in 2014.

I was tipped off to these weathervanes by a reader who sent me an email and a link to the New Boston Historical Society's website, which has a page about weathervanes in their town.  This is a great website, and I encourage you to take a peek at the history behind these historic weathervanes.
