Goat weather vane

Road art lovers will get a kick out of this one-of-a-kind goat weather vane atop the old meeting house in Dundee, Kentucky.

We spotted this road art treasure traveling from Owensboro (to visit grandsons Graham and Evan Waggener) to Columbia on a recent weekend and had to ask about it at the store nearby. They happened to have a brochure with the story courtesy of the Bank of Ohio County.

The "Dundee Goat" as he is referred to by local residents is perched in royal remoteness on his pedestal on top of an 80 foot spire of the lodge hall in Dundee, Kentucky.

A proud, haughty looking aloof old codger standing with his chin held always into the wind, he is one of Ohio County's more prominent landmarks.

Legend has it that he is the lone survivor of three such weather vanes shipped into the United States from Dundee, Scotland in the late 1890s.
