Driving Directions: Coming into Maryville on 129 (Alcoa highway) from downtown or from Pellissippi Parkway (I-140), watch for the Y after the airport. Even though the sign says that Maryville is to the left, stay to the right (straight) to remain on the 129 south. You’ll soon arrive at the intersection of 321 (Lamar Alexander Parkway) and 129 (Home Depot on the right, Target on the left). Do not turn on 321, but reset your odometer here as you continue on 129 south.

From the above intersection of 321 & 129, travel 5.2 miles south on 129. You’ll pass the Foothills Mall, lots of stores and a second Walmart, then through a bare stretch, and then at 5.2 miles will hit a stoplight with the RiteStop gas station on the left. Turn left here to stay on 129.

Continue on 129 south for 2.3 miles. You’ll pass Rheems Heat company on the right and a church on the left. Turn left on Walker School Road. (Look for the smallish Mt. Carmel Baptist Church sign on right side).

Continue .9 miles on Walker School Road to 1149. Walker School Road makes a full right turn at .7 miles, past Mt. Carmel Baptist Church and Camp Tipton. We’re .2 miles beyond the right turn on the right side just as the road starts up a hill. Our mailbox (black) is on the left, across the street from the long gravel driveway, which is on the right. It’s a residential address, with the shop directly in front of you as you pull up the drive.
