Park­ing and Direc­tions:

 

The entrance to the Schweikher House is a long gravel dri­ve­way along the east side of Meacham Road. The dri­ve­way can be spot­ted by our large grey mail­box next to the gap in the guardrail. At the end of the dri­ve­way, there is a small area of park­ing in the court­yard between the garage and house. If the court­yard park­ing area is full, cars may also park along the north side of the dri­ve­way along the grassed shoul­der, fac­ing out toward Meacham Road. Please pull far enough off the drive on to the grassed shoul­der to allow cars to pass. Please turn around in the court­yard; no U-turns are allowed along the length of the driveway.
