At McAfee’s station, in 1788, Mrs. McAfee said- “Young man, I have just taken seven loaves of bread out of the oven, so take what you want.” Based on this documentation of a bread oven in Kentucky (less than fifty miles away), we now have a bread oven. Lots of research and information about bread has gone into creating a program about 18th century frontier bread making.
