Directions to Mercy’s House


Directions to Mercy's House, 2 Water Street, Hulmeville, PA 19047

From I-95 Northbound:  Exit at Street Road/Route 132 and go west (left).  At the second traffic light go RIGHT on to Hulmeville Road (Route 513).  Drive 3.7 miles, at which point you will go down a hill, cross the Neshaminy Creek, and be at the traffic light in "downtown" Hulmeville.  Take a hard RIGHT hand turn.  (Hulme Street bears off to the left, but don't take it.) Water Street will be straight ahead. Ignore the "Do Not Enter" sign, and enter.  I am the first house on the left with a stone front, across from the Old Mill Flea Market and facing the creek. Turn your car around and park in front of the house.

From I-95 Southbound: Exit at Penndel/Business Route 1.  Bear RIGHT onto Business Route 1 and proceed for less than a mile to the second traffic light.  (Big Marty's Carpet Store is on the left.) Turn LEFT onto Bellevue Avenue (which is not marked) and proceed 1 mile to your first traffic light.  You are now in beautiful "downtown" Hulmeville.  The Hulmeville Inn will be on your left and the Old Mill Flea Market will be on your right.  My  house is visible between the two, with a stone front.  Go straight ahead and enter Water Street where it says "Do Not Enter."  Turn your car around so it faces the right direction and park in front of the house.

From Route 1/Pennsylvania Turnpike:  Exit the Pennsylvania Turnpike at exit 351 (Philadelphia/Route 1).  Go north (left) for less than a mile and exit Route 1 at PENNDEL by bearing right.  You will then be on Business Route 1.  In about a mile you will encounter a pair of traffic lights.  Go RIGHT at the second  traffic light onto Neshaminy Street.  Follow it until you come to the first traffic light.  You are now in "downtown" Hulmeville.  Continue straight ahead, entering the street that says "Do Not Enter."  My house is the first stone house on the left, opposite the Old Mill Flea Market.  Turn your car around and park in front of my house.
