FROM THE WEST    (UPSTATE NEW YORK)

Take I- 90 to Exit 11E (Rte. 20 East).

Take Rte. 20 east. Go straight through the first two stoplights near the Thruway and continue several miles to the traffic light in Nassau.

Turn right on 203 and then an immediate left on the diagonal (going in front of the Pizza place). Follow Malden Bridge Road to the yield sign in Malden Bridge.

Go left on 66 past the post office and cross the bridge. Go straight when 66 turns left, but immediately...

Turn right before the white community center building onto Shaker Museum road--drive about two miles until the road comes to a "T" and go left onto County Rte. 13.

Turn right onto the dirt road at the Powell House sign (about 50 yards from the "T").  The parking lot is past the buildings.

FROM THE EAST    (MASSACHUSETTS)

Take I-90/Berkshire Spur/Mass Pike to Exit B2 (Taconic Parkway).
Take a right immediately after the toll booths, following the "commercial traffic" sign to route 295.

As soon as you exit, you have to go left at the T because the other way is a dead end. You will swing back left again to go under the bridge. Follow those signs to 295.

Turn left onto route 295 and go 1 mile to East Chatham. Just past the new post office, turn left at the sign "Old Chatham 3 Miles."
At the stop sign in Old Chatham, turn left just past the Old Chatham Country Store onto County Route 13.
After one mile you'll see the Powell House sign marking a dirt road on your left. You may enter the driveway to load and unload. Parking is in the lot up the road past all the buildings.

I-87 / NY Thruway
FROM THE SOUTH    ( NYC/ NEW JERSEY)

Take I-87 Thruway to Exit 21A (towards the Mass Turnpike & Boston). You will pass exits 21 and 21B before you get to 21A.

Go 15 miles to Exit B2 (Taconic Parkway). From here, follow the directions for "FROM THE EAST (MASSACHUSETTS)"

TACONIC PARKWAY
FROM THE SOUTH     (TACONIC/ NYC)

Take the Taconic Parkway north to "Last Exit Before Toll - Rte. 295 - East Chatham."
Take the jog left just a little ways to 295. Turn right on Rte. 295 and go 3 miles to East Chatham.
Go left at the sign "Old Chatham - 3 Miles."
At the stop sign in Old Chatham, turn left at the Old Chatham Country Store onto County Rte. 13.
After one mile you'll see the Powell House sign marking a dirt road on your left. You may enter the driveway to load and unload. Parking is in the lot up the road past all the buildings.

When in doubt, follow the signs to "The Shaker Museum" which is just one mile from Powell House. Never give up.
