Thurmond is best accessible by getting onto US rt. 19 North via exit 48 off of interstate 77.  After approximately 5.8 miles, turn right at the caution light in Glen Jean.  Take your immediate left in front of the Exxon.  After approximately 0.4 miles on this road, take a right hand turn onto Thurmond-McDendree Rd/Cr-25 and then an almost immediate left (in front of the bank) onto McKell Ave and then another almost immediate left to get “back onto” Thurmond-McDendree Rd.  Stay on County Rt 25 all the way down to Thurmond (approximately 7 miles).
