This Is Missouri Sliced Bread Day In Chillicothe
On July 7, 1928, the Chillicothe Baking Company in northwest Missouri became the first commercial bakery in history to have bread mechanically cut into uniform slices. To celebrate the 90-year milestone, the town of Chillicothe is gearing up for its first annual Missouri Sliced Bread Day on Saturday. This celebration is getting some publicity across the state and Pamela Klingerman, curator of the Grand River Historical Society Museum in Chillicothe, told Missourinet the machine’s popularity grew instantly.
Today’s celebration begins this morning and ends with fireworks tonight.
