13 Chandler St.

Maynard    MA 01754

Cell: 508-341-0231; House 978-897-2765

Chandler Street is inside the triangle formed by Routes 117, 62 and

27, pretty much in the center of Maynard.  So, not surprisingly all

the approaches to my house will be on at least one of these roads.

Take 128 to 2A (or 2) and then take Rte 62 through Concord into

Maynard. When 62 becomes Rt 27 (Parker St.) at the traffic light

Elmwood Street is the right turn off about 0.3 miles past Waltham St,

at the neighborhood ball field park. Our house is on the northwest

(uphill on the right hand) corner of Chandler Street crossing Elmwood


From the west on Rt 495 you can take Route 117 (Exit 27) east through

Bolton, Stow into Maynard, and turn left at Rt 27 north (at traffic

light), then take 4th left onto Elmwood Street at the ball field park.

From the west on Rt 495 you can take Route 2 (Exit 29) east through

Littleton and then in Acton take Rt 27 (Exit 42) south into Maynard.

Then you can take the left turn onto Nason Street (soon after

Cumberland Farms), then straight through traffic light at Summer St.,

then right onto Main Street, then immediate left onto Walnut Street

(right in front of The Mill), then second right onto Dartmouth Street,

then bear left onto Chandler.
