West Acton MAP 
From Rt 2 (from Alewife Parkway in Cambridge, Rt 2 in Concord, Rt 128/95):

Take Rt 2 West to Rt 111 West (about 1 mile west of the Concord Rotary).  Take Rt 111 through one set of lights, past a school, down a hill over some wetlands (say hi to the peeping frogs!), up into the village...when you've reached the railroad tracks that used to carry a good portion of the apples to market, you're in West Acton!

From Rt 495:

Take Rt 2 East. About a mile take the first exit. Take a right.  West Acton Center is about a mile from Rt 2...don't forget to stop in at Idylwilde Farm stand on your way to West Acton!

For more information, contact local resident Terra Friedrichs (978 266 2778), who will give you a guided tour of the village as it stands today, or direct you to Bill Klauer of the Acton Historical Society who will take you on a tour of historic architecture and tales of olde!
