The American Legion Post is just minutes south of Hartford. Following the "Old Wethersfield / Motor Vehicle Department" signs will get you most of the way there.

From the North (Hartford):

  • Take I-91 south to Exit 26
  • Turn right at the stop sign at the bottom of the ramp, and immediately left onto Marsh Street
  • Follow Marsh around to Main Street - The access road is quite long, initially paralleling I-91 south, and then veering right a couple times (landmark at Main is the flagpole / illuminated church steeple)
  • Turn right on Main, and go one block to the American Legion Post (a white churchlike building on the left)

From the South (New Haven):

  • Take I-91 north to Exit 26: At this point, you're about 1.5 miles from the Legion Post
  • At the stop sign at the end of the ramp, turn left (Great Meadow Road)
  • Stay on Great Meadow to the end: Go under Route 3, left at the next stop sign, straight through the stoplight, and finally under I-91 to the T intersection
  • Turn left at the T intersection onto Marsh Street
  • Follow Marsh around to Main Street - The access road is quite long, initially paralleling I-91 south, and then veering right a couple times (landmark at Main is the flagpole / illuminated church steeple)
  • Turn right on Main, and go one block to the American Legion Post (a white churchlike building on the left)
