How To Get to the Me&Thee Coffeehouse

From Boston/Airport

Marblehead is 17 miles north of Boston.

From the Callahan Tunnel in downtown Boston or from Logan Airport, take route 1A 9.5 miles to Lynn.

Then follow Route 129 along the coast through Swampscott to Marblehead. Route 129 becomes Atlantic Avenue in Marblehead.

Continue on Atlantic Avenue around a left curve to a five-way intersection.

Go right on Washington Street past red brick Abbot Hall on the right at the crest of the hill, continuing down the hill and then curving to the left, continuing to the Old Town House (a yellow frame building offset from the sidewalk).

Go around the Old Town House three-quarters of the way to Mugford Street, and turn right up Mugford.

The Unitarian Universalist church is one block up Mugford Street on the left.

From the West (Route 128/Salem)

Get off Route 128 at the Route 114 East/Marblehead exit.

Stay on Route 114 through its many turns, past Salem State College, into Marblehead. Route 114 in Marblehead is called Lafayette Street.

Soon after entering Marblehead, there is a fork. Stay on Lafayette Street, which veers sharply to the left.

Go straight through the next few lights. Lafayette Street becomes Pleasent Street.

Go a couple of miles on Pleasant, past the little shopping mall on the left and later the Information Booth in a small park on the right.

Keep going straight up the hill until Pleasant ends on Washington at a stop sign.

Turn left and go one block to the Old Town House (a yellow frame building offset from the sidewalk).

Go around the Old Town House three-quarters of the way to Mugford Street, and turn right up Mugford.

The Unitarian Universalist church is one block up Mugford Street on the left.

By MBTA Bus

Take T Bus #441 or 442-Marblehead from Haymarket Square T Station. Get off at Town House Square and walk half a block up Mugford Street. The Unitarian Church is at the top on the left.

Parking

Try to find on-street parking on Washington, Mugford, Elm, Green, or Pond Streets.

Driving up Mugford from Washington, Elm is the first right after the church, Pond is the second right.

Don’t park in no-parking areas — you may receive a ticket or be towed.

Parking is available in the Gerry School parking lot on 50 Elm Street. There are limited spaces so please be courteous and park as efficiently as possible. You cannot leave your car in this lot overnight.

Also within easy walking distance, you can park near the Marblehead Charter School at 17 Lime Street, which is a left off Pond Street.

Driving and Parking Tips

It is wise to avoid driving down Route 114 through Salem to get to Marblehead, especially during the month of October. For those of you who are unaware, Salem hosts a month long “Haunted Happenings” extravaganza and spooky fiends and fans from all over descend upon the area during the entire month of October. If you plan to attend a show at the me&thee during October, we advise you to take an alternative route if you usually come into town via Route 95/128.

Think about taking the exit for Route 129 and head toward Swampscott and Lynn instead. Follow 129, which goes right along the coast through Swampscott. Continue going straight on Humphrey Street which then turns into Atlantic Avenue in Marblehead. Once you hit “downtown Marblehead,” you’ll see a CVS on your left and a shop called “Shubes” straight in front of you. Take the right onto Washington Street. Go to the end and turn left. You will see the yellow Town House in front of you. Bear left around that building and turn onto Mugford Street.

Street parking is available on Elm Street to your right. There is a school parking lot located on your right. There is also parking available if you bear left on Elm Street or if you continue straight ahead and take a right onto Pond Street. You can also park in the Marblehead Charter School parking parking lot, which is located on Lime Street — your first left on Pond Street.
