Back in 1801, a simple metal rooster weather vane was placed on the tall steeple of the new stone church. Proud Hurley residents finally had a church to call their own. In 2015 the antique rooster, with its distinctly folk art look, has a safe roost inside today's church, and its silhouette adorns many properties around town. Artists with Hurley connections have applied their talents in diverse interpretations of the original Hurley rooster. We celebrate the creativity and civic spirit the artists have so clearly revealed in their works. All found new homes at the Hurley Rooster Auction on Sunday, September 27, 2015. We will miss them, but their photos remain with us to remember them wherever they go!
