Directions: The site is the Armoury in Martinsburg, WV. Find your best
way to I81. Take exit 12 and head east. Take the first right
(stoplight by Lowe's) onto Route 11 south. 1 & 3/4 miles later turn
left onto Kelly Allen. 3/4 miles later turn right -- it's the only
right. The Armoury is at the end of the street on the right. Do not go
to the guard booth, the site is before that. Signs should be visible
