The restored bakehouse is one of the oldest remaining buildings on Angel Island. It was built in the late 1800’s and was used to bake bread for the civil war soldiers stationed at Camp Reynolds on the west side of the island. Bread was part of a soldier’s pay so the bakehouse was one of the first buildings completed at the camp. Through generous donations and the hard work of Mary Noyes and her husband the bakehouse was restored and can be toured on weekend days throughout the summer. If you lucky you might get to sample a sugar cookie baked in the wood burning oven.
