About Us

Bar Harbor Weathervanes and Cupolas

Bar Harbor Weathervanes Retail Shop is located on the outskirts of Bar Harbor on Route 3 right before you get to Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. We are right up next to Trenton Airport on the left. We are a white two-story old farmhouse with lots of cupolas and weathervanes on the ridge line of the building and in our yard decor. We are thankful to be in the Acadia National Park area as it is one of the most beautiful locations in Maine.

History of Bar Harbor Weathervanes and Cupolas Inc.

Our weathervane founder was started by William H. McElvain Sr. in 1971 out of his garage.  He found that he had such a talent of bending and forming metals into weathervanes that he quit his day job to become a full-time coppersmith and weathervane maker. William H. McElvain Sr. has been inducted into the Maine Historical Museum for his amazing collection and craft of weathervane art.

Present Day Weathervane Designers

Today, Bar Harbor Weathervanes is onto the third generation of copper artists as we continue to add new weathervane designs and other products each year. Our hope is to continue making copper weathervanes for generations to come.
