Weather Vane Wednesday ~ Another Rooster on a Barn

Every Wednesday I post a photo of a weather vane from the area of New Hampshire once known as Nutfield, now the towns of Londonderry, Derry and Windham.  Today I wandered a bit over the border into Litchfield.

Do you know the location of weathervane #68?  Scroll down to see the answer.

Litchfield is squeezed between Londonderry and the Merrimack River.  The river valley is very flat, and very fertile, and is still full of farms and barns.  I was surprised to find that even though there are many, many barns along the Charles Bancroft Highway (Route 3A), hardly any barns have cupolas or weather vanes.  I had to look hard.  This one is at the Naticook Farm.  Although I have seen many rooster weather vanes on houses and even on gas stations and businesses, it is very fitting to see a rooster on top of an old red New Hampshire barn!
