From the intersection of the I-35 Freeway/Hwy 67 in Alvarado: Go south on Hwy 67 through Cleburne (toward Glen Rose), either the highway or the business loop, which is also West Henderson Street.

FROM THE CHISHOLM TRAIL PARKWAY TOLL ROAD: Turn right onto Hwy 67 going south once you get to the end.

FROM THE HIGHWAY: Curve right onto Hwy 67 (business loop) continuing south.

FROM THE BUSINESS LOOP (West Henderson Street): As you approach and face Texas Health Huguley Hospital, turn left which connects again to Hwy 67 south. The sign will read Glen Rose. We are one mile from the hospital on the left side.

ONCE YOU PASS THE HOSPITAL:
Pass Byron Stuart Park on your right, cross over the bridge (Lake Pat Cleburne) and start to look to your left.
Find the silhouette cattle drive and the tepees!
Get in the first left turn pocket you come to. Turn left here and make an immediate second left turn. (Basically, a U-turn onto a service road.)
Continue on and we are the second driveway. Welcome to Wardville 1854!
