History of Joseph Goulds Home

Joseph Gould was one of the town’s most influential business men and politician.  His home was constructed in 1859 on the current site of the Uxbridge Township Office.   Joseph Gould lived in this stately residence until his death in 1886.  From 1951 – 1959 it was home to 3 convent nuns and unfortunately in 1961-62 it was torn down to provide a playground for the newly constructed St. Josephs Catholic School.
