Don Graham bids adieu to The Washington Post building

Former Washington Post chief Don Graham posted a goodbye to his old paper’s building on Facebook Monday night. “This probably was my last day at 1150 15th Street after 43 years,” he wrote. “The Post seems to be in wonderful shape under Jeff Bezos, Katharine Weymouth and Marty Baron.”

Graham Holdings Company, the former Washington Post Co., is moving from Washington, D.C., to Arlington, Virginia.

GraHoCo offered items from its art collection to Post employees last month, with proceeds designated to TheDream.us, a scholarship fund for undocumented students that Graham founded.

The Post won’t be in its 15th Street building for much longer either; it plans to move to a building with a serious Dan Brown connection.

    Wow–that’s really heavy. The end of an era. I hope that the new ownership is able to really carry on what the Post has meant to many generations of readers. To…really care. To show it. To demonstrate it in their commitment to the worker bees that build the new hive each day. To not cut back until a great paper feels like a newsletter. Oh no–I hope that doesn’t happen. You never realize what a privilege it is to have an incredible paper written by smart, talented and knowledgeable journalists…until you move to a city that doesn’t have that.
