Guest Parking

Parking is available and free for guests on the seminary campus. When entering Wilmore from Lexington (U.S. 29), turn left on East College Street/Jessamine Station Road. (This is the first traffic light in town. Look for a Marathon gas station on the left and the entrance to Asbury University on the right.) After you turn left onto East College Street, you will take first right onto Walnut Street. The available lots are located on either side of N. Walnut Street, on the left. Directional signs can be picked up from Asbury Inn on the day of your wedding to indicate parking, directions to your chapel, and the Reception Hall.
