Ye Old Stagecoach… Dodgingtown, CT.
Now I know what to do with those photos – “thanks” to Heather Wilkinson Rojo at Nutfield Genealogy; she blogs Weekly Wednesday Weathervanes in New Hampshire. Please check out her page and enjoy the many unusual weathervane photos and often be entertained with a history lesson. It’s amazing at what you can encounter in your travels – You Just Need To Look Up!
I was pleasantly surprised when I spied “Ye Old Stagecoach” high above a garage in Dodgingtown, CT., a small town near Redding. This was a new area of roads for us… so our eyes were peeled for new weathervane discoveries… and we were rewarded!
The stagecoach seems to have a man riding in the back seat playing an instrument, but I’m not sure of the type. Riding in the middle, I believe, is a woman with others… and on the front seat is the driver, with a whip… and possibly another woman. The stagecoach is pulled by a team of four horses, complete with harness lines showing; love seeing the definition of the whip and spokes in the wagon wheels.
