Location of the Fireside Room
The Fireside Room is the part of the building down the driveway about 30 feet to the right, and the entrance is on a small courtyard. The photo below shows the church (marked Plymouth Jazz & Justice Church); the gray building to the left of that is the Fireside Room, and the parking lot is the large grey area at the top of the photo. There is an apartment building (redone from the old Town House) to the left of the church, and it has its own (larger) parking lot to the left of it (do not try to park in that lot).
