Several local groups have come together to add a brick wood-fire oven to the Old Fort. The idea started as an Eagle Scout project to put in the foundation, according to a news release, then was facilitated by Chicago Brick, which provided a brick oven at a discounted price, and Laborers Local 213 and Bricklayers Local 4, who put the final bricks into the project Sept. 20. The new oven will be used during events at the Old Fort to demonstrate how early settlers cooked in wood-fire ovens. The oven was installed in a previously empty corner of the fort, according to the release.
