Post Office Birdhouse
Williamsburg's 18th-century communications hub. William Parks was the public printer of Virginia, charged with the job of reproducing the acts of the General Assembly. In 1736, Parks founded the Virginia Gazette, the first newspaper in the colony, and promised to deliver the "freshest Advices, Foreign and Domestick."
Virginia craftsman A. Michael Ratcliffe turned several of Colonial Williamsburg's historic buildings into distinctive (and functional) wooden birdhouses. Completely hand-made, hand-painted, signed, and numbered. Use indoors just to admire, or in a protected location outdoors for birds still in the market for real estate. Bases unscrew for mounting.
