6666 East River Road, Fridley
From I694 take the East River Road exit. Head north on East River Road (from the West, this is a right turn; from the East, a left turn). Go through 4 stop lights. After the fourth light, prepare to take the first left turn; you will see a small brown sign for Banfill-Locke on the right side of East River Road, and a left-hand turn lane will put you right into the parking lot. The center is an old white farmhouse with a sign in front; enter off the parking lot in the back.
