"New Hampshire on High: Historic and Unusual Weathervanes of the Granite State"

If you want to know which way the wind is blowing, look to the rooftops of New Hampshire barns, churches and town halls. For a fun and engaging look at weathervanes from earliest times to the present, the Historical Society invites you to the New Boston Community Church on Thursday evening, September 13th at 7:00 pm.

Glenn Knoblock will speak about the history of weathervanes, their symbolism, and their evolution from practical weather instruments to architectural embellishments.

Glenn Knoblock is a popular NH Humanities presenter and author of fifteen books. His latest: “Weathervanes of New England” which was published this year, includes some of New Boston’s own weathervanes!

On display will be a historic Fire Department weathervane which was atop New Boston fire stations for over one hundred years. After the program, cross the street to the Historical Society museum for ice cream sundaes and to see our exhibits.  New Boston Historical Society programs are free and open to the public.
