Directions

From the North:¬†Follow Md Route 213 to Chestertown. Turn right at Cross Street traffic light (Royal Farms is on the left). Take Cross Street and turn left at next light onto High Street. On High Street go one block to Court Street (also called “Lawyers’ Row”). Turn left and then right at the end onto Church Alley. The Geddes-Piper House is on the right in mid-block at #101.

From the South:¬†Cross the Chester River bridge on Md 213 to Chestertown. Turn left at Cross Street traffic light (fire house on right). Take Cross Street and turn left at next light onto High Street. On High Street go one block to Court Street (also called “Lawyers’ Row”). Turn left and then right at the end onto Church Alley. The Geddes-Piper House is on the right in mid-block at #101.

Parking on Church Alley is very limited. Parking is usually no problem in Chestertown, except during the Tea Party in May. Park anywhere on High or Court Streets as you enter Chestertown and walk to the Geddes-Piper House. Parking is available at the Court House lot on Cross Street and a walking path exits from the rear of that lot to Court Street. Go half a block to Church Alley.
