American as Apple Pie

Step back in time and make pie the 1860 way! On Saturday, March 25th, 2017, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park will offer a 3-hour baking workshop, where participants will have the chance to bake and enjoy a slice of fresh fruit pie baked the 19th century way on a wood or coal burning stove.

Learn about the connections between the town’s early industrial history and local immigrant Baker and Brewer, Frederick Roeder. Compare 19th century baking methods and discover how the historic Victorian system of food production, today called the slow food movement, was achieved.

A workshop fee of $50.00 for adult participants covers baking ingredients and instruction by park staff in woodstove oven management. This event is suitable for children 12 and up with an attending parent. Visit for information about registering for this workshop. Registration closes on March 17th, 2017 and is limited to 6 participants.
