Volunteers help Old Fort add wood-fired oven
Members of union locals – Bricklayers Local 4 and Laborers Local 213 – helped install an oven at the Old Fort this month. The oven will be used by re-enactors to demonstrate how brick ovens were used in wood-fire cooking. According to Historic Fort Wayne, which maintains the Old Fort on Spy Run, the newly completed oven began as an Eagle Scout project that produced a foundation for the oven.
Then Chicago Brick provided an older model pizza oven at a large discount. Members of the two union locals finished the brick work this month.
