Walk from Millburn Train Station
From the New Jersey Transit train station, between Glen Avenue and Essex Street, exit onto Lackawana Pl or walk down the stairs to Essex Avenue. Walk one and a half blocks on Essex Avenue and turn left at Main Street. Two blocks beyond Millburn Avenue you will arrive at Church Street where you will see a large sign welcoming you to St. Stephen’s Church. Taylor Park is across the street.
Several handicapped parking places are reserved near the entry to the church. A ramp leads from the parking area to the double door entry to the Parish Hall. A second ramp leads to the Church Street doorway. Both doors lead to a level hallway that leads into the church.
To the Cemetery and Mausoleum
The entry to the St. Stephen’s Cemetery and Mausoleum (The Chapels at Short Hills) is at 451 Millburn Avenue, just opposite Millburn High School. The road leading from Millburn Avenue into the cemetery runs past the historic Cemetery Cottage and winds throughout the cemetery grounds to the Mausoleum found at the far end of the property. There is a small parking area in front of the Mausoleum.
Our narrow roadways originally served as paths for travel by horse and carriage. When a large number of cars are expected it is necessary for all vehicles to follow the same entry and exit path. If you are attending a graveside service or an entombment in the Mausoleum attendants will be on hand to guide you to parking.
