Fall Bake Day
November 9, 2019
Visit Fort Gibson Historic Site for Fall Bake Day on Saturday, November 9, at 10 a.m. The aroma of fresh-baked bread will fill the air on Garrison Hill as OHS staff and volunteers bring the bakehouse to life. Enjoy bread making demonstrations in the original wood-fired oven from 1863. Visitors can even sample the finished product! Purchase a coffee mug in the gift shop and the bakers will be happy to fill it up with a hot beverage.
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. Fort Gibson is a National Historic Landmark. For more information please call 918-478-4088.
