Stedman Buttrick had a showplace house and garden in Concord, Massachusetts
that overlooked "the rude bridge whre the embattled farmers stood"
(quotation from poem NOT composed by Clarence Mahan). I believe it is now a
part of the National Historic Site (maybe someone from New England would
know if the garden is still in existence?).
