The Printing Office & Post Office on Duke of Gloucester Street. Built in the early 1700's, this building was the central hub of communication for 18th century Williamsburg. The printing office would play a key role in spreading news and information that influenced the choices Virginians made during the Revolutionary years. The first public printer in Virginia was William Parks, who began publishing the colony's first newspaper, The Virginia Gazette, in 1736. Today guests can still send mail through the post office.
