This is a real post office so don't expect it to be a big museum. But if you have time and happen to pass by, please go in and spend a few minutes, write a letter with the appropriate ink and paper, seal it with wax and send it to your family. I think it is worth it!
The First Toronto Post Office is the only departmental post office of the Royal Mail that remains today. This building was built between 1833 and 1834. This post office was called York Fourth Post Office and later known as Toronto First Post Office. The building operated as a post office until 1876, and then it was transformed into a full-service post office and museum managed by the Yorktown Historical Society.
In front of the post office, the national flags of Britain and Canada are left and right. In 1833, all post office directors in Upper Canada were appointed by the United Kingdom. This post office was also the residence of the post office supervisor.
This is a lively museum. If you have beautiful handwriting, you can try to write a letter with a quill pen. For a fee, you can stamp the envelope with the words "Yorktown-Toronto 1833" and send it out. There are some old ones inside. City model
Toronto's first post office, and a museum, continues to develop post office business!
