T Directions: Watertown is served by MBTA Bus Lines 59, 70 and 71 (to Watertown Square) on the north side of the Charles River, and 52, 57, 502, and 504 (to Watertown Yard) on the south side of the river. The closest bus stop is on the 70, which follows Arsenal Street through Watertown and stops at the intersection with Beechwood Avenue. From here, walk south on Beechwood one block to cross North Beacon street, then continue south on Beechwood. The Perkins campus will be on your right and private homes on your left. The house is on the right hand side of the street just before the street dead-ends at Charles River Road. Just past a fire hydrant, enter the campus through the gate, walk up a short flight of stairs, bear to the left and enter the house at the front door there. Alternatively, get off any of the listed buses at Watertown Square or Watertown Yard, which are about 3/4 mile due west of the house. From Watertown Yard, walk north across the Galen Street bridge over the Charles River to Watertown Square, then east along Riverside Drive (not Charles River Road) through a neighborhood and then directly onto the Perkins campus. Continue east through the campus until you reach Beechwood Avenue, then turn south (right) on Beechwood and follow the directions above.

Driving Directions: 

  • From the northeast (north side of Charles River, east of Watertown): The address is easily reached from either Arsenal Street or North Beacon Street in Watertown. Beechwood Avenue intersects both. Drive south on Beechwood until the road begins to drop down a short hill to Charles River Road. Park near (but not at!) the fire hydrant on the right hand side of the road. Enter the campus through the gate, walk up a short flight of stairs, bear to the left and enter the house at the front door there. If arriving in Watertown from the east but via Mt. Auburn Street, proceed all the way to Watertown Square and follow the directions from the northwest, below.

 

  • From the northwest (north side of Charles River, west of Watertown): Get to Watertown Square via Main Street (from Waltham) or Mt. Auburn Street (Belmont or Cambridge). Proceed east on Arsenal Street one block, and bear to the right on North Beacon Street. Continue east on North Beacon Street approximately ½ mile; the Perkins campus will be on your right. At the intersection with Beechwood Avenue (there is a stoplight here), turn south (right). Drive south on Beechwood until the road begins to drop down a short hill to Charles River Road.

  • From the south (south side of Charles River, either east of west of Watertown): From the Mass Pike (I-90), use Exit 17 to access Centre Street in Newton, and proceed north (down the hill) to the Charles River and across the bridge to Watertown Square. (Centre Street becomes Galen Street just north of Newton Corner.) From Newton or Newton Corner, get to Centre Street/Galen Street and proceed north as described.
