IMPORTANT ROAD CLOSURE INFORMATION FOR SHELTON HOUSE AND THE 2022 BLUE RIDGE HERITAGE WEEKEND ARTS & CRAFTS FAIR:
There is a temporary road closure on Pigeon Street between Main Street and Shelton House from now through July or August. An easy alternative route from Main Street to the Shelton/ HART Parking lot is to take East Street, take a right onto S. Hill Street, then take a right onto Pigeon Street followed by an immediate left into Shelton/HART’s parking lot.
If you are coming from 276, you do not have to take the Raccoon Rd Detour. The “closed road” happens just after HART’s entrance when coming from 276. You can safely maneuver around the road block as “local traffic” and proceed on 276 to Shelton House/HART Theatre Parking lot. Follow the sidewalk to the Shelton House, Event Barn and/ or the Carriage House Gift Shop.
If you need to enter the Shelton House driveway located off Shelton Street, turn on Auburn Rd off S. Main Street, then left on Burke St. and a quick right onto Shelton Street. This will take you to the Shelton House driveway. To driveway from 276 turn left on Oakdale Rd. Take 1st right (Broad St) follow through to Shelton St., turn right to Shelton House driveway.
THE WEEKEND OF THE EVENT THERE WILL BE NO PARKING IN THE DRIVEWAY AS VENDORS WILL BE SET UP BUT IT APPEARS PIGEON STREET WILL BE OPEN IN FRONT OF SHELTON HOUSE SO THAT YOU CAN DRIVE TO THE SHELTON/HART PARKING LOT. ALSO PARKING IS ALLOWED ALONG SHELTON STREET, AND IN THE SALVATION ARMY PARKING LOT OFF PIGEON STREET RIGHT PAST THE LARGE PARKING AREA.
