*Note – Despite what internet mapping sites may show, Guilford School Rd is NOT accessible from Guilford College Rd.
Directions: Traveling in either direction on I-40, take Exit 213 (Guilford College Rd). At the end of the ramp, turn right and continue about a mile until you cross railroad tracks at West Market Street.
You can no longer turn left onto Lindley Rd. because there is  a new median so you will have to pass it, loop around and go back south, then turn right onto Lindley.  (You will have to go down until you can turn left onto a street, turn around and then right to go south on Guilford College Rd. then right on Lindley.  )Go 4 tenths mi., then turn right onto Guilford School Rd. The Grange is the last building on the right.
