Winter Bake Day
December 16, 11 a.m.–3 p.m.
Fresh-baked gingerbread soldiers, nurses, and laundresses will be served at Fort Gibson Historic Site’s Winter Bake Day on Saturday, December 16.
The smell of fresh-baked gingerbread cookies will fill the crisp autumn air on Garrison Hill as staff and volunteers once again bring the 1860s military bakehouse to life. Gingerbread cookie kits will be available to purchase from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or while supplies last.
Cookies are made from 19th-century recipes and include candy trimmings similar to those from the 1800s. Children may decorate their cookies at our Commissary decoration station or purchase a kit to go to go! Kits are $5 each, and a recipe is included for those who wish to create a new tradition at home.
Folks who come to make the cookies but wish to stay are welcome to tour the rest of the site or stroll the grounds. Admission can be purchased at the Commissary gift shop or the Palisade office.
For more information, please call 918-478-4088. The Fort Gibson Historic Site is located at 907 N. Garrison Ave. in Fort Gibson. It will be open on the day of the event from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
