Inscription.  Alfred Dolge, area industrialist, used 50 teams of horses to import material to his Dolgeville manufacturing complex, 10 miles north of Little Falls. In 1891 realizing the potential economic benefit of a railroad connection between Dolgeville and the New York Central Railway in Little Falls, Dolge and his business partners hired large groups of Italian immigrant men to construct his railroad spur.

Bread for the Italian laborers was baked in this 100-loaf capacity oven.

This structure is classified as rare.
