Spring Bake Day, Fort Gibson Historic Site
Fort Gibson Historic Site and the Friends of Fort Gibson will host Spring Bake Day on Saturday, March 25, beginning at 10 am. Bake Day is a fundraiser and educational event that depicts one aspect of army life during and after the Civil War. The aroma of fresh baked bread will fill the air on Garrison Hill as Fort Gibson staff and volunteers bring a bake house to life. This living history presentation details the bread making process, with Rory Montgomery explaining how to bake bread in an old wood-fired stone oven. Guests can enjoy bread baking demonstrations and sample the finished product. Visitors also may bring their own bread to bake in the oven at Fort Gibson, then spend the day viewing a reconstruction of the early log fort as well as original buildings from the 1840s through 1870s. Exhibits detailing the history of the fort are located in the Commissary Visitor Center on Garrison Hill.
