561 Blankenbaker Lane
Louisville, KY 40207
Lane is a narrow, twisting road for part of its length,
not the straight line as shown on the schematic map.
Take I-71 North. Continue on I-71, passing the I-64
split, and exit at Zorn Avenue. Turn left onto Zorn,
taking care as you cross the median. Make a right turn
onto River road at the light (Chevron Station on the
corner). Turn right onto Blankenbaker Lane, approximately
6 miles from downtown Louisville, at the traffic light.
You will proceed gradually uphill as you travel away
from the river, and will find the entrance to the Locust
Grove parking lot on your left, immediately past Twin
Hill (on the right).
Take either the I-71 to Zorn Avenue route described
above, or if you are already close to the riverfront,
just take River Road all the way out to Blankenbaker
From points along
the Watterson Expressway (I-264):
Take the Watterson eastward to the Brownsboro Road (U.
S. 42) exit. At the end of the ramp, turn left and proceed
to the third traffic light. Turn right onto Blankenbaker
Lane. Locust Grove will come into view within about
1-1/2 miles, just as you crest a small ridge. Make a
right turn into the parking lot, just after passing
the historic house.
