1. Old Bakery Marker
Inscription. Built 1876 by Chas. Lundberg. Bread then was not sliced or wrapped; children and maids waited with baskets to take home loaves hot from the oven. House specialties were sponge cake ladyfingers, glazed kisses, almond-meal macaroons.

A front balcony (since razed) permitted a later baker, Henry Maerki, to photograph parades, including one in 1901 for U.S. President William McKinley.

Now Austin Heritage Society’s tourist information center.
 
Erected 1966 by the Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 14949.)
