Every Wednesday for two years I've been posting photographs of weather vanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located). Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weather vanes. Today's weathervane can be seen on the Maine coast. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.
Do you know the location of weather vane #111? Scroll down to see the answer....
Today's weather vane was photographed at the Hotel Pemaquid, 3098 Bristol Road, New Harbor, Maine. The three dimensional horse and sulky weather vane is atop the carriage house, across the street from the main part of the hotel. This hotel was originally a farmhouse, and was converted to a hotel on 4 July 1888. It is located only 150 yards from the ocean coastline, and is near the historic Pemaquid Lighthouse. There is a weather vane of a sailing ship on top of the main hotel building, too, if you look closely.
