About

This little building served as the town's first post office from 1835 to 1856. In the early 1950s, it was saved from demolition and moved to Lakeside Park where it became a museum. Try your hand at writing with a quill pen. Then, wander around the lovely park and surrounding grounds overlooking Lake Ontario.
