According to the Door's Open Website:

Toronto’s First Post Office is a small private museum administered by The Town of York Historical Society, situated on its original site and within its original walls. The interior is a recreation based on authentic archival materials discovered still extant from Postmaster James Scott Howard’s original construction in 1833. We are a legally incorporated non-profit organization, members of the Ontario Museum Association, Canadian Museums Association, the Ontario Historical Society, as well as numerous other local historical societies and related organizations.
