The Mark Twain Library is located at the corner of Route 53 and Diamond Hill Road in Redding. At this location, Route 53 is known as "Redding Road"; if you are using Google Maps, Mapquest, or an automobile navigation system, enter "439 Redding Road" as the library's street address.

From the Merritt Parkway (three options)

  • Option 3 - Route 7 (part of route under construction; expect delays)

    After exiting from the Merritt, head north for about a mile on the wide connector road, which ends in a T-intersection. Take a RIGHT at the traffic light, and then a LEFT at the next traffic light, after which you will be heading north on Route 7.

    Follow Route 7 from Norwalk through Wilton for about ten miles (lots of traffic lights and commercial development). When you reach the intersection with Route 107 (marked with a traffic light and a state route sign), take a RIGHT (the right turn allows you to avoid the stoplight) onto Route 107. (Landmark: Shell station on far corner).

    Proceed on Route 107 into Redding for about three miles until you reach a stop sign, which marks the temporary merger of Routes 107 and 53; continue 100 feet to the next stop sign, and go straight. (At this second stop sign, Routes 53 and 107 diverge; you want to stay on Route 53, which continues straight ahead.)

    Look for the Library on your left in less than a quarter of a mile.
