We have a new place to jam!

Directions to the Chesnut Family Music Store in Effingham, IL.
A line drawing map and a Google Earth photo of the area of the Chesnut Music Store are shown below. The key street is West Fayette Avenue. I hope it is clear that all the highways into Effingham eventually connect with West Fayette Avenue and a key landmark is the railroad underpass. Turn north just east of the underpass onto Banker then within 200 feet or so turn west on to the east/west street, Section, that leads to Front Street going north to the Chesnut Family Music and additional parking. The small red dot identifies the store location.
