“Working reproduction of the William Nuthead printing press, which was used in the first printing house in the Southern Colonies. This fully functional printing press, located in the Print Shop in the Historic St. Mary’s City living history area, is used to demonstrate the steps printers went through to produce just one sheet of printed paper.”
Website: “Lead type found during archeological digs showed that it was the location of the first printing press in America south of Boston. The printers were William Nuthead and his wife, Dinah, and their business mostly revolved around printing government forms for the Assembly. Business slowed when the Capitol moved to Annapolis, so when William died in 1695, Dinah packed up the printer and headed to Annapolis with it. There, she became the first licensed woman printer in America.”
