Welcome to Toronto’s First Post Office! Operated by the Town of York Historical Society, we are a museum, National Historic Site, and a still functioning Post Office. Our purpose is to research, interpret and promote the history of the Town of York and early Toronto, and to advocate on behalf of the preservation of the Town of York’s surviving built environment.

At Toronto’s First Post Office, we strongly believe in taking every opportunity share the story of the Town of York and early postal service in Toronto. Along with our virtual exhibits, we have developed various activities, games, virtual tours, and programs that can be explored from the comfort of your home here.
