DIRECTIONS TO CRARY MILLS COMMUNITY CENTER

From Canton
At the intersection of Rt. 11 and Rt. 68 (Stewart's, Pizza Hut & Price Chopper) take Rt. 68 toward Colton (south). After passing two separate flashing yellow lights for curves in road, look for the next small intersection that has a sign noting that it is Langdon's Corners (roughly 5 miles from Canton.) You do not have a stop sign there, so keep an eye out for the green Langdon's Corners sign. Take a Left there onto the Crary Mills-Eben Road, heading towards Potsdam. Less than a mile down, at the flashing yellow light, in the middle of a speed zone, take a Right onto the Post Rd. If you pass a playground and cross a low bridge, you just missed it, turn around! It's a short way down the Post Rd. on the left.
35 Post Rd., Crary Mills/Canton, NY 13617.

From Potsdam
You can either take Rt. 11 to Canton and then follow the directions above (your first turn would be a Left onto Rt. 68 at the Stewart's/Pizza Hut/Price Chopper intersection of Rt. 11 & 68 - the first light when you enter Canton.)
OR (the shortcut)
In Potsdam, go to the intersection of Maple St. and Rt. 47 (Back Hannawa Rd.) where the "new" Kinney's is, as well as Clarkson University across from it. Take Rt. 47 over the hill past Clarkson. Take the second Right turn onto the South Canton Rd. Stay on this road for 3-4 miles until you come to your first stop sign, which is a funny intersection where you need to merge onto a larger road on a big curve. That road is Rt. 35, which is also called the Crary Mills-Eben Rd. Pretty much you just drive straight onto 35, you're merging onto it, not really turning onto it. About a mile or so down Rt. 35 you will approach a speed zone in Crary Mills. You will cross a low bridge and pass a playground as you approach the flashing yellow light. At that light, take a Left onto the Post Rd., and It's a short way down on the left.
35 Post Rd., Crary Mills/Canton, NY 13617.

From Colton
Take Rt. 68 towards Canton. About 2-3 miles out, after going down and then up a big hill, you'll see signs to take a Right at an intersection coming up in order to stay on Rt. 68. Do this, take a Right there. If you pass the Pierreont Volnteer Fire Dept. you have gone a little too far. Once you're on the new section of Rt. 68 you'll briefly be in a speed zone in the center of Pierrepont. Once back on the open road it's maybe 3-4 miles until you approach an intersection that is marked as Langdon's Corners. You do not have a stop sign there, so keep an eye out for the green Langdon's Corners sign. Take a Right at that intersection onto the Eben Rd., heading towards Potsdam. If you come across the Cornell Cooperative Extension Farm, you have gone 2-3 miles too far. Less than a mile down the Crary Mills-Eben Rd., at the flashing yellow light, in the middle of a speed zone, take a Right onto the Post Rd. If you pass a playground and cross a low bridge, you just missed it, turn around! It's a short way down the Post Rd. on the left.
35 Post Rd., Crary Mills/Canton, NY 13617.
