Twice a day, the smell of freshly baked bread spreads over the central part of the Village. It comes from this red frame building, where the bakery has been kneading dough since the early morning. A hardwood fire is built in the red brick oven and once this is hot enough and the coals have been raked out, the pans are put in. The bakers make the dough from flour, ground at nearby Bellamy's Flour Mill. The bread is baked by heat radiating from the hot oven bricks.
While most farmers and townspeople baked their own bread, there was always a need for bread for travellers and inns.
Visitors can purchase loaves at the Village Store located at the front entrance of the Village daily during the summer season.
