Weathervane Wednesday ~ Seen at the Shelburne Museum

Every Wednesday for more than two years Vincent and I have 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. If you know an interesting weather vane, please send me an email or leave a comment below.

Today's weather vane was found just over the border in Vermont. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #138? Scroll down to see the answer....





Today's weather vane was photographed at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont.  This little weathercock is on top of the steeple of the meetinghouse.  It is a nice copper weather vane with a great patina. It was originally built by Methodists in 1840 in Charlotte, Vermont. It was used as a library in 1902 until it was damaged in a storm.  The meeting house was moved to the museum in 1952 for preservation.
