Toronto's First Post Office

The Canada Post location at 260 Adelaide E in Toronto is Toronto's first post office. It was built in 1833 in what was at the time known as the Town of York. It was the town's fourth post office. But when the Town of York was incorporated into a city in 1834, this post office became the first post office of the new city, which had changed it's name to Toronto.

This post office is still in operation, providing full mail services. It is also a postal museum and small library. They have a few special postmarks available that can be used on outgoing mail.
