Parking Information

Parking is free, but at a premium right now, because of construction of a new science building in front of the library. You can park anywhere on the street (except for Route 82). There is some parking behind the bank (now closed), and there is a small lot on Bancroft Street. You can also park in the lot at the Hiram Christian Church, or at the Gym, if you want some exercise. Those staying at the Inn have it easy, because there is a parking lot there reserved for guests.
