From I-35 take the 4th/5th street exit, turn northwest (opposite the Baylor campus) onto 4th street. 4th street is a one-way street; travel 1.95 miles to Ellis street, turn left onto this one-block street. Park on Ellis, or park in the posted lots on Ellis & 5th street, or, make a left turn onto 5th street and park in any of the posted lots near Earle-Harrison House. For landmark drivers: once you turn from I-35 onto 4th street, you’ll drive thru downtown Waco, cross over Waco Drive (Waco Police Department on the corner) – keep going. When you come to the Cameron Park Zoo entrance (right side of road), your turn will be Ellis St., a one-block street to the left, two blocks past the Zoo entrance. Our double gate is about halfway down Ellis St. on the left. Park inside the gates or in the Ellis St. parking lot. Earle-Harrison House’s front door faces the gardens, not 5th St.
