The Southborough Historical Society asked me to share that they won’t be on the field at Heritage Day this year. Instead, the group will be holding special open hours at the Southborough Historical Museum from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm.

- Talk about the Burnett-Garfield House, answer questions about the house and describe the enormous legacy of the Burnett family to the town.
- Offer simple free refreshments
