Meeting location/directions

Meetings are usually held on the third Sunday of each month. Sometimes we move it a week earlier or later to avoid out-of-town ferret shows, so be sure to check the Events schedule. Our current location is the Trinity Lutheran Church at the corner of Margaret Street and Brownsville Road. Go in the small red door on the side of the building. We meet downstairs. You can park in the bank’s parking lot.

Driving directions:
From Monroeville: Follow Rt. 376 towards Pittsburgh. Go through the Squirrel Hill Tunnel, pass the Squirrel Hill Exit and then you will come to two exits one right after the other. The first is Oakland and the second is Glenwood. Take the Glenwood Exit. This dumps you out onto Bates St going downhill. Go to the bottom of the hill at the traffic light and turn LEFT onto Second Avenue. Immediately get into the right lane and go to the next traffic light (barely 1 block) and turn RIGHT onto Hot Metal Street. Go to the end of Hot Metal Street and turn RIGHT onto East Carson Street. Follow East Carson until you see South 18th St on your left. Turn LEFT onto S 18th and follow that all the way up the hill (it makes a couple sharp turns on the way). At the very top of the hill, the name changes to Brownsville Rd as you cross Arlington. Same road, different name. Go to the SECOND traffic light after you cross Arlington and turn LEFT onto Margaret Street. [1]You will see the church there on the corner. Park in the Northwest Savings Bank parking lot that is just across from the church on Margaret. Come in the red basement door. There is a Stair Glide if you need one to get down the steps. Not wheelchair accessible.

From Robinson/Airport area: Follow Rt. 279 towards Pittsburgh, exiting at the Route 51 South/Uniontown exit just before the Fort Pitt Tunnels. Go to the 4th traffic light and [2]turn LEFT on Bausman (there will be a thrift store called the “Red, White and Blue Thrift Store” on your right). [*]Go to the stop sign on Bausman and turn right (it says right turn doesn’t have to stop). Go to the top of the hill at the traffic light and turn RIGHT onto Brownsville Rd. Go to the next traffic light and turn LEFT onto Margaret St. Follow from [1] in Monroeville directions above.

From the North Hills/Cranberry: Follow Rt. 579 into Pittsburgh taking the Veterans Bridge/Liberty Bridge exit. Stay in the left lane to get onto the Liberty Bridge. Once on the Liberty Bridge, get in the right lane and go through the Liberty Tunnels in the right lane. As you exit the tunnel, go forward about 50 feet and take the Rt. 51 South/Uniontown exit. As you get onto Rt. 51, you will immediately need to get into the far left lane so you can turn LEFT onto Bausman (across from the “Red, White and Blue Thrift Store”). Follow from [2] in Robinson directions above.

From the South Hills:
Take Rt. 88 or Baptist Rd. to Rt. 51 (Saw Mill Run Blvd). Turn LEFT (going North towards Pittsburgh) on Rt. 51. Follow past Whited St, stay in right lane and watch for “Red, White and Blue Thrift Store” on left. At that traffic light, you will turn RIGHT onto Bausman St. Follow from [*] in Robinson directions.
