Bus Drop Off and Parking:
If your bus is school bus size or smaller, you can drive up to the “Authorized Vehicle” parking Lot.
To get there, in front of the Montpelier Art Center, turn right onto small traffic circle so you are going counterclockwise.
From circle, turn right onto low, ramped curb, then take immediate sharp left onto paved drive going up to brick Carriage House.
(If there is a large, grassy field on your right, you missed the turn.)
Follow drive as it curves right past Carriage House, and continue towards the large brick building, which is the house museum.
There will be a small parking lot on the left. You can drive past the parking lot to drop off students
Then, please go back to the larger lot near the Carriage House to park.
Remember: you can only drive up to the smaller lot near the house museum if your bus is school bus-size or smaller. There is not enough room for larger vehicles to turn around.
