Directions to my home:  From I-85/40 take exit  41 - “Old 128 Lee St exit”.  It is East Lee Street.  Follow East Lee St., East about 1 mile to Nelson’s Farm Rd. on right.  Follow Nelson Farm Rd. to Alamance Church Rd. turn left on Alamance Church Rd. about 1 mile to stop light, turn right on Southeast School Rd. then go about 200 feet, turn right on Williams Dairy Rd. and go 9 tenth’s mile on left to my house.

Williams Dairy Rd. also dead-ends into Old Liberty Rd. about 5 miles Southeast of Greensboro.  3741 Williams Dairy Rd. will be 1 mile on right.

 Please Note: Approaching Greensboro you would swing around below the city on I-85 BYP (By-Pass) and take exit 128 Alamance Church Rd.  However if you decide to stay on I-85/40 approaching from the East then it is call exit 41- “Old 128 Lee St exit” and obviously approaching from the West you take exit 38 - “Old 126 ML King Jr. exit” going South 1 short block and turning left on Alamance Church Rd. then take Williams Dairy Rd. on right as above.
