Opening its doors to the public on April 15, 2011, the Printing Office of Edes & Gill is Boston’s only colonial printing experience, located along the historic Freedom Trail in the Clough House, adjacent to Old North Church, at 21 Unity Street. We offer unique personal encounters with history and colonial printing. As Boston’s only colonial trade experience and only colonial living history interpretive experience, our historic equipment, live demonstrations, interpreters and historic settings enable new levels of understanding how colonial printing affected communities and sparked a revolution in America.
Our hours starting April 15, 2011, will be:
Friday 10 am to 4 pm
Saturday 10 am to 4 pm
Sunday 10 am to 4 pm
Starting June 15, 2011, we anticipate opening our doors seven days a week from 10 am to 4 pm, possibly 5 pm. Stay tuned for more details soon.
About Benjamin Edes & John Gill
On April 7, 1755, Edes and Gill became the proprietors of The Boston Gazette and Country Journal. According to the author of Infamous Scribblers (2006), the Boston Gazette, arguably the most influential newspaper the country has ever known, got us into the Revolutionary War, sped up the course of the war and may have even determined the outcome of the war.
