Directions to Carruth House
Map & Directions
Downtown Boston is a 10 - 15 minute direct train ride on the Red Line from Ashmont, Harvard Square is 25 minutes, and the fare is US$2 each way. Purchase a 1-Day Link Pass for US$9 or a 7-Day Link Pass for US$15 which includes subways, buses, trolleys, water shuttle from the Charlestown end of the Freedom Trail back to downtown, and zone 1-A of the commuter rail.
We are a 10 minute walk from Ashmont Station (which is nearing completion of a new facility). Please check the confirming email from Carruth House for the map showing walking directions from the station, as our nearby pedestrian entrance is closed during construction. It is scheduled to re-open in Spring 2010.
