You can Mapquest or Google Map “364 Leigh Farm Road, Durham NC 27707″ and get pretty accurate directions. However, both services show a road called “Davis Drive” that does not actually exist. Ignore this. Leigh Farm Road continues well past the stump that both show, and goes into the woods.

If you have difficulties, call (919) 489-0900. Hope to see you soon!
