Amidst the cobble stone streets of Hampton and the smell of the salty air, The Historic Post Office was alive with the hustle and bustle of the city as a fully functional postal hub from 1914 until 1986. As the Hampton Roads area has transformed over the ages, so has The Historic Post Office.
After closure in 1986, The Historic Post Office served as a multi-functional space; from a social club to a restaurant. It then sat vacant for nearly a decade until it went up for auction in March of 2013. It was purchased at that auction to be used as additional studio space for a television show production business.
In 2016, the ownership group decided on another repurposing, this time to engage the space for celebrations and gatherings.
As of January 2017, The Historic Post Office is now the newest and most unique venue in Hampton Roads.
Just a quick stroll away from the waterfront, The Historic Post Office is thrilled to offer Hampton Roads a premier event venue while still maintaining its historic charm.
From the street you can see the original façade that was designed after the Palace of Versailles in France. Step into The Historic Post Office and feel the atmosphere of a building that stands the test of time.
We are pleased to offer a venue with modern amenities but still with a vintage feel.
