A Street Map to Mudge’s Burial Site at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Lynn, MA

In the waning years of his life, Charley Mudge’s father, Enoch Redington Mudge, devoted himself to the construction of an Episcopal church in Lynn: St. Stephen’s.

The church has its own website, including a section on its history, here; there is a very good Wikipedia entry, here; and a recent newspaper article on the thought process that went into giving the building, interspersed with a short bio on Enoch Mudge, here.

Going there is profoundly different than reading about it. I urge you. Make the trip.

The gravesite is in the center courtyard of the building, called “The Garth.” It’s best to call ahead, as there is no access during off hours.
