Description

One of Beaver County’s oldest businesses on Market Street in Bridgewater. ’01 – Fredrick Walters came to Pittsburgh to bake bread in a small frame building on the corner of Bridge St. and Riverside Drive. A year later, he moved to Beaver and provided “the staff of life” to residents for 25 years. In 1885, back to Bridgewater, he built the first brick building in 1901 and several annexes to become the present building which also contained the family residence. He delivered bread on foot; then in 1917 he used horse and wagons. By 1926, Louis Braun of Braun Bros. Bakery in Pittsburgh took over the company. With as many as 130 employees, they would keep the ovens going until 1979, when Stroemann Bread Company purchased the business. My family moved to Bridgewater in 1951, and the first evening there, the air was filled with the aroma of bread baking.

This scene is of the daily evening truck leaving for Youngstown, Ohio. The last production day was January 25, 1985.
