If you come via I-81, take exit I-181 going South.
Take Exit 31 (Milligan College), keeping to the right as the ramp forks.
Turn right. At the light will be the exit ramp for those coming North
on I-181**. Almost as soon as you enter the Elizabethton Highway, you
exit on the right.
This time, keep to the left of the exit ramp and turn left onto a
divided highway, being careful to avoid the concrete median. (This is
Milligan Highway, but you're not told this until you leave it.) Keep in
the left lane, and get into the left turn lane at the four-way stop
Turn left onto King Springs Road. Pass a little church on the right, go
over the railroad, and at the four-way stop sign look to the left for
the Foxfire sign.
Turn left onto East Maple. The next left is the dead-end street where
most of us park. The driveway is reserved for handicapped parking.
If coming from the direction of North Carolina, the directions are
almost identical. Take Exit 31 and almost immediately exit again (see
the **asterisks above).
The meetinghouse has no phone, so if you need to get in touch with us at
the last minute, call one of these cell phones: Edie Patrick
423-726-1728, Laurie Waber 276-608-3902
(FYI -- Milligan Highway, at the corner where you turn off it, becomes
Legion Street; at the corner where our meetinghouse is, King Spring Road
becomes East Highland. Both possible sources of confusion.)
