Stopped with grandchildren just because it was the world's largest weathervane. Surprise! My 8 year grandson took a real interest. From that point on he pointed out any weathervane he saw! Ice cream stand nearby - bonus.

It was cool to watch it turn with the wind. The explanation of dimensions and history were interesting. A nice spot to have your ice cream treat from Twisters.

Very unique, built by a local company Whitehall industries and a great photo opportunity for the teenage grandchildren. That coupled with The bike trails that go approx. 30 miles to the nearby town of Meers took most of the day with lunch on the ride.
