Old ‘Jake' is back

WINCHESTER, Va - Old Jake is back in Winchester at the Rouss Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company.


The weather vane of a fireman has been down for a few years after it was damaged by a storm.

The weather vane is a replica of the original one, which is on display at the Museum of Shenandoah Valley. 



Donald Bowers, treasurer of the Rouss Volunteers, said that the weather vane is valued between $3 to $ 4 million.
