Fully Operational Louis Roy Press
Rarest in the Mackenzie Printery's collection is the Louis Roy Press, oldest in Canada and one of the few original wooden presses remaining in the world! A hands-on experience is encouraged with a working linotype and eight operating heritage presses.
A Historical Landmark
The site was the former home of "responsible government," where firebrand editor William Lyon Mackenzie began his publishing career with his newspaper, the Colonial Advocate, dedicated to political reform. A life sized wax replica of Lyon Mackenzie still inhabits the building.
