Event Navigation

Visit Fort Gibson Historic Site for a special holiday-themed bake day on Saturday, December 17, at 10 a.m. Fresh bread and batches of giant gingerbread men will be baked in the historic Fort Gibson ovens just in time for the holidays! Fresh batches of each will be ready at noon and again at 3 p.m. Gingerbread men will be ready for decorations throughout the day starting at 11 a.m.

The smell of fresh-baked bread will fill the crisp fall air on Garrison Hill as OHS staff and volunteers bring the bakehouse to life. Learn about this aspect of post–Civil War army life as you enjoy bread-making demonstrations in the original 1863 wood-fired oven. Visitors can even sample the finished product, and children can decorate their own gingerbread man to take home.

Open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Fort Gibson Historic Site is located at 907 North Garrison Avenue in Fort Gibson. For more information, please call 918-478-4088.
