Hours + Directions
The entrance to the Schweikher House is a long gravel driveway along the east side of Meacham Road. The driveway can be spotted by our large grey mailbox next to the gap in the guardrail.
At the end of the driveway, there is a small area of parking in the courtyard between the garage and house. If the courtyard parking area is full, cars may also park along the north side of the driveway along the grassed shoulder, facing out toward Meacham Road. Please pull far enough off the drive on to the grassed shoulder to allow cars to pass. Please turn around in the courtyard; no U-turns are allowed along the length of the driveway.
