Fall Bake Day, Fort Gibson Historic Site
November 11, 2017
Fort Gibson Historic Site will host Fall Bake Day on Saturday, November 11, at 10 am. The aroma of fresh-baked bread will fill the air on Garrison Hill as OHS staff and volunteers bring Fort Gibson’s bake house to life. Enjoy bread making demonstrations in the original wood-fired oven from 1863. Visitors can even sample the finished product. Bake Day is a fundraiser and educational event that depicts one aspect of army life during and after the Civil War. Attendees are welcome to 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. For more information please call 918-478-4088.
