I remember the days of old when Dick Jancek was up in Ted tree service bucket truck welding on the weather vane. Dick was instrumental in building the Worlds largest weather vane. I'm glad that this beauty sits in the heart of Montague. Everyone should enjoy a ice cream at Twisters and walk around the weather vane. I will always... More

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 take time to talk to the locals about it as their thoughts are quite interesting.

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.

Spent part of the spring months in our RV on Route 66 and saw a few other "world largest" things but forgot all about this in a city we visited for 20 years a long while ago. So, for you seekers of the worlds largest here's one for you in a quaint town near beautiful Lake Michigan. Lovely place to... More
