Bake Day and Gingerbread Decorating Planned at Fort Gibson Historic Site
FORT GIBSON, Okla. — Fresh-baked bread and gingerbread will be served during a bake day at Fort Gibson Historic Site on Saturday, December 17.

Learn about one aspect of army life after the Civil War and enjoy bread-making demonstrations in the original wood-fired oven from 1863. Visitors will get to sample the finished product. Children will get to decorate a gingerbread man to take home.
