Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Running Horse

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 Maine.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #372?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This two dimensional running horse weathervane can be seen on the side of Route 1 in Wells, Maine at the resort called The Cottages at Summer Village.  The very tall cupola over this barn like community and fitness center can be seen from quite a distance down the road.

This resort is a gated community, but this community center is right on the main highway. According to their website, there was a barn located at this site, before the resort was constructed.  The horse weathervane is a very appropriate part of the new construction, since the running horse is the most popular weathervane seen on New England barns.  This building also houses the front office and reception areas.
