Sitting on the major streets corner in downtown Montague sits a giant working weathervane. It is a magnificent site and a real tourist attraction. Watch it move when the wind blows. Amazing!

It was nice, but it was just a big weather vane. I have been there several times with friends and family. There is a shop where you can purchase weather vanes.

Impressive working sculpture...nice way to put Montague on the map! Stop and walk around it, then pick up any items on your grocery list at the grocery store.

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.

At the edge of the bike trail by a campground. This is supposed to be the largest in the world. There is a grocery store and ice cream parlor next to it.

We make it a point to try to find the "largest" of anything when we travel. This is right across the street from the Inn !

You cannot miss seeing this weathervane when traveling through Montague. It is much bigger than we expected and the history was interesting. It was chatting with the locals about this weathervane that made me re-evaluate my original thoughts that this was an average attraction. So...More
