Collections and Archives

Toronto’s First Post Office Museum was founded on the existence of the historic building, records and documents pertaining to its first use as a post office, and a collection of artifacts relating to that history and to the importance of the postal service to communications in Upper Canada.  These materials represent all aspects of early Toronto and the Town of York’s heritage. The collections are divided into two parts: the Archival Collection and the Artifact Collection. The collections are constantly being enriched through acquisitions and donations.
