Printing Office

If you feel like you need a little more history in your life, an old Boston printing office provides the perfect place to visit and learn from.

The Printing Office of Edes & Gill is Boston’s only colonial era printing experience. It opened its doors to the public in 2011 and is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Visitors to Edes & Gill have the opportunity to talk to living historians who worked with the printers in pre-revolutionary Boston. These same printers represent the citizens who were up in arms over British governmental policies that they considered to be in violation of the rights.

A visit to the Printing Office also includes checking out the historic equipment that is available, live demonstrations, and interacting with interpreters in an effort to understand how colonial printing affected communities and sparked a revolution in America.
