** Estonian House, 20 Middle Island Blvd., Middle Island, New York

Go to LIE Exit 68 north on William Floyd Parkway (There are signs to:
Brookhaven National Laboratory) From William Floyd Pkwy, at the light that marks the entrance into Brookhaven National Laboratory, turn left unto Longwood Rd. (instead of turning right into the Lab).

After the first light on Longwood Rd. you will pass the Longwood Junior High on your left; then, at the next light, also on your left is Longwood High School.  Go to the end of Longwood Rd. down the hill; at the light, turn right unto YAPHANK-MIDDLE ISLAND RD(CR-21); go about 2.4 mi., crossing over Rte. 25 (Jericho Tpke). A little further down the road, on your left, you will see a sand & gravel, and pre-cast concrete factory, and then a large “HARDWARE” sign. Immediately after that, take the first left unto MILLER PLACE YAPHANK RD; go about 0.8 mi and then you hit a 4-way crossing.

At the crossing, turn LEFT unto WHISKEY RD. and go about 0.6 mi. Watch for the first intersection sign! Then, turn LEFT unto MIDDLE ISLAND BLVD. About
0.2 mi down, on your right, you will see a chain link fence and then a large sign “HILL”.


There is also another large sign inside the fence, “Estonian House”. Go right in, and park anywhere on the grass on the south side of the clubhouse.

The entrance to the clubhouse is on the WEST side of the building (not on the side facing the parking area), so just walk around a little bit.
