Horse Weathervane

Long before the invention of the motorized truck and farm tractor, the Percheron draft horse provided the power to build and feed our nation. This noble horse now provides the power, substance, beauty, and style as America’s work and recreation horse for the twenty first century. This horse weathervane is located on the Percheron Horse Association of America building in Fredericktown, Ohio.

The breed derives its name from the place that served as its cradle. Le Perche is an old province about 53 by 66 miles located some 50 miles southwest of Paris.

In 1810, eight members of the Thomas & Sarah Cellar extended family, plus Leonard Monroe, organized Liberty Presbyterian Church. For its first 26 years, Liberty shared a pastor and Session with the Presbyterian congregations in Delaware and Radnor.

In 1820, Thomas’ sons George and John built the wood-frame meeting house that is still used as our chapel (it is the oldest continuously-used worship building in Delaware County), situated beside the settlers’ cemetery.
