Mourning Paul Doucette

The Southborough Historical Society is tremendously saddened to learn of the death of Paul Doucette earlier this week. Paul was a long time member of the Southborough Historical Society, having served on its Board of Directors for many years. Paul was especially interested in the history of the Burnett Family’s Deerfoot Farm, which at one time was the largest employer in Southborough. He wrote and published a history of both the Burnett family and Deerfoot Farm. In 2004 the society honored Paul by dedicating the Deerfoot Farm exhibit and Burnett family collection located at the Historical Society Museum to him. His vast knowledge of this part of Southborough’s history as well as his keen wit will be sorely missed.

Farewell, Paul.

  1. So sorry to hear of Paul’s death. He was great enthusiast for Burnett family history and helped preserve a great deal of documentation. He also led a wonderful tour at one of our reunions. He will be greatly missed.

  2. YES…Paul did so much to study and share the history of the Burnetts and Deerfoot Farm — such important pieces of Southborough history—and was always enthusiastic about his work. We will miss him in many ways.
