Directions to Persimmon Forge



Usually, I welcome visitors to the studio to take the tour or discuss work. It is best to call and make sure I'm not away running errands or working somewhere else. Most of the coal forge hot work occurs between 2 and 4 in the afternoon. That time is noisy and busy and doesn't accommodate conversation well. Still, that is the best time to see how forging is done. Other quieter times are better for just looking around or discussing a project. Currently, I often work weekends and I can open up in the evening if an appointment is made.

From 335 Turnpike Toll Booth, Exit 127:

Proceed toward Kansas City and Industrial road. Exit at 128, Industrial (stoplight). Turn left, north, and continue past the commercial area to 24th street (stop sign). Turn right, east, and continue to Prairie Street (stop sign). Turn left and go one block then turn right onto Coronado. In one block turn left onto Monterey and proceed north and east about four blocks to the second street on the left which is Hacienda Court.

From West Highway 50

Go east on Highway 50 to the roundabout and take the second exit toward Kansas City and Industrial road. Exit at 128, Industrial (stoplight). Turn left, north, and continue past the commercial area to 24th street (stop sign). Turn right, east, and continue to Prairie Street (stop sign). Turn left and go one block and turn right onto Coronado. In one block turn left onto Monterey. Wind north and east about four blocks to the second street on the left which is Hacienda Court.

From I-35 Merchant Street, Exit 130:

Go south on Merchant and right onto 18th Street. Go west to the stop sign at Rural St. Continue west about 10 blocks to the dead end at Maplewood Cemetery. Turn right, north, onto Lincoln St. and go about 3/4th mile through an underpass at I-35. One block beyond it turn left onto Coronado. Take the first right onto Rio Vista which proceeds north and west about five blocks. Turn right at your second opportunity which is Hacienda Court.

Our home is situated on Hacienda Court and the studio is a separate structure closer to the cul de sac on Derecho Court to the east.
