conch shell house location?

Hi, does anybody know where the conch shell house is located (I'd like to get a glimpse of it when we visit)? I know it's south of downtown, but not sure how far south or whether it faces the east or west. Thanks!

It is south of downtown on the east side of the island.

As you head south from El Centro on the Caribbean-side road -- not the Bay road -- you will go at least four miles. Shortly past the island's garbage transfer station (dump) the road rises slightly. Look to your right (away from the sea) for the Conch Shell House. If you get all the way to Garrafon (the southern tip of the island), you have passed it. Go back about one-half mile.

As you head down that road you really can't miss it. And if you have a mapchick map (and you DO, don't you?) it's marked on the map.
