Taking it with you.
The nation's newest columbarium--one of the largest ever built--now sits near Boston. The owner: 41-year-old Boston hedge fund king Thomas Hudson, Jr., who has just had 450,000 pounds of Vermont granite turned into a final resting place that features 17-foot cathedral ceilings and hand-carved stone lions.
Hudson's new columbarium can comfortably host as many as 88 urns, and Hudson family members, one local news report notes, have taken to calling the million-dollar structure "The Inn."
