Where do you make the weathervanes?

Weathervanes and Cupolas are what we specialize in here at Bar Harbor Weathervanes. Our main weathervane store is located in Trenton Maine, which is a small town on route 3 prior to entering Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. When traveling to Bar Harbor it will be hard to miss our weathervane shop since we have decorated the building and yard with cupolas and weathervanes. You will see cupolas mounted with Eagle, Rooster and Horse Weathervanes, special note goes out to our one of a kind Monster Pig Weathervane mounted on a majestic cupola that our Master Coppersmith has dressed up as a Masked Pig, super Pig Weathervane.

Please note that we make our wind vanes and cupolas are made to order, we do keep many weathervanes and cupolas in the retail store but if you are looking for a special arrow weathervane, rooster wind vane or horse weathervane it may be good to call ahead to make sure we have that weathervane or cupola to view. Some of our larger cupolas can take 3-4 weeks to make so do not expect to see the extremely large cupolas in the retail store. Most of our made in Maine weathervanes will take us about 3-7 business days to make but a large eagle weathervane or rooster weathervane can take much longer do to the difficulty level to make these particular weathervanes.

Do you have an old copper antique weathervane or just an old weathervane that needs a new roof mount or a new part to make it whole again?

You are in the right place since we do our best to help you get the parts you need to make your old weathervane whole again.

About Weathervanes & Cupolas

Bar Harbor Weathervanes was created by our founder, William H. McElvain Sr. in 1971 from 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 weathervane maker. Once William mastered the copper weathervane he started getting many requests for cupolas, which are great mounts for weathervanes. He started making cupolas for weathervanes with copper tops.

Please note that all weathervanes come without mounts, this is because if you have a cupola you will not need mounting hardware, unless of course you want a different cupola for your new weathervane. The cupola is the mount, our cupolas come weathervane ready with a ¾” hole in the top of the cupola to take the weathervane rod. Please be sure to grease the weathervane spindle with marine or axle grease. Synthetic Lubricants also will work great on the weathervane spindle to keep the squeak away and keep the weathervane turning smoothly.

If you see a specific weathervane that you wish to view in person, please call ahead before coming to our retail locations outside of Bar Harbor Maine – this is because many of our hand made weathervanes are made once the weathervane order has been placed. Our Larger weathervanes can take up to a month for us to make so they require purchase before they are manufactured. Also the same is said of our larger cupolas, many are made only after they have been ordered and can take up to month for us to produce. With this thought in mind it would be better to call to make sure we either have the weathervane and cupola in stock or order it in advance of your trip so that we will have it ready for you on your arrival to the Bar Harbor Retail Shop.
