Recently, the paper NewmarketToday shared an article about the historic Ebenezer Doan House by Newmarket resident and local historian Richard MacLeod. The article discusses the house’s Quaker origins as well as its more recent history as the Doane House Hospice. The article can be read on the NewmarketToday website.

For those interested in more Doan Quaker connections, the blog has featured in the past articles on Hannah Doan Lundy (1812–1901), an important figure in the Children of Peace schism, and James Doan (1846–1916), who created the popular nineteenth-century brand Doan’s Kidney Pills.
