Constructed on-site: 1955

Constructed from historic timbers, the Print Shop exhibits a range of printing equipment that might have been found in an early 20th-century small-town print shop, from an 1820s handpress to a 1950 high-speed Heidelberg press. Late 19th-century newspaper and job presses, large collections of wood and metal type, and a revolutionary Linotype typesetting machine from the 1920s illustrate the changes and evolution of printing technology.
Support from Benjamin Battles Lane (1897-1987), president and general manager of Lane Press in Burlington, Vermont, was instrumental in establishing the shop as a demonstration site.
