Bake Day and Gingerbread Decorating
December 17, 2022, 10 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
Visit Fort Gibson Historic Site for a special Bake Day on Saturday, December 17, at 10 a.m. The staff at the fort will cook fresh bread and batches of gingerbread cookies just in time for the holidays! Fresh batches of bread will be ready at noon and again at 3 p.m., and big batches of gingerbread cookies will be available 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 person to take home.
Open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Fort Gibson Historic Site is located at 907 N. Garrison Avenue in Fort Gibson. For more information, please call 918-478-4088.
