At the Intersection of HWY8/61 head West on HWY 8 and follow it past the downtown area across the “little hill” of the old railroad track passing, going past Firestone and the Cleveland High School. When you arrive at 5th Avenue ( Just past the golf course –it has a  Stop Light), you will see the Coliseum on the right. Make a left and then an immediate right into the parking lot. Kethley Hall will be to your right then and Jobe Hall will be on your left (Richard Ford’s reading).
