Parking & Accomodations

Parking
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide free parking for our guests. We reside in a beautiful building, to be sure, but it is land-locked, with no provision for parking. There is a paid parking garage right behind us, on Scarritt Place. Metered-parking is also available curbside.

Looking for Accommodations?
Scarritt-Bennett Conference Center is located across the street from the Historical Society and offers reasonably priced accomodations and meals. For more information, visit their website.
