Griffith Academy

The Griffith Academy, just minutes south of Hartford, is in the former American Legion building. Following “Old Wethersfield” and “Motor Vehicle Department” signs will get you most of the way there. Set your GPS device for 275 Main Street, Wethersfield, CT, or get directions from where you are here.

FROM THE NORTH (HARTFORD):

  • Take I-91 south to Exit 26
  • Turn right at the stop sign at the bottom of the ramp and take an immediate left onto Marsh Street.
  • Follow Marsh Street around to Main Street. Marsh Street initially parallels I-91 South, then curves right two times. When you get to the flagpole and illuminated church steeple you’ve arrived at Main Street.
  • Turn right onto Main Street and drive one block to the Griffith Academy, a white, churchlike building on your left. It is on the corner of Main Street and Hartford Avenue.

FROM THE SOUTH (NEW HAVEN):

  • Take I-91 north to Exit 26. At this point you’re about 1.5 miles from the Griffith Academy and will have to take a circuitous path to get there.
  • At the stop sign at the end of the ramp turn left onto Great Meadow Road.
  • Take Great Meadow road to the end, go under Route 3, turn 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 Street around to Main Street. Marsh Street initially parallels I-91 South, then curves right two times. When you get to the flagpole and illuminated church steeple you’ve arrived at Main Street.
  • Turn right onto Main Street and drive one block to the Griffith Academy, a white, churchlike building on your left. It is on the corner of Main Street and Hartford Avenue.

PARKING
There is ample free parking on Main Street in a parking lot directly across from Griffith Academy, and on Hartford Avenue, which runs perpendicular to Main St. We suggest parking in the lot across the street as you’ll always find plenty of free parking there.
