History

According to public record, the Bakery Village site was a residential area as far back as the 1860’s. In 1946, the Turnbull family opened a warehouse to manufacture ice cream cones, and later Melba toast. Under the oversight of Elizabeth Turnbull, Turnbull Bakery gradually grew from a shotgun double to take up the majority of the city block. Mrs. Turnbull passed away in 2010 and the bakery operated in the same location until it permanently closed in 2012. Developer Nicole Webre purchased the property in 2015 and, with the approval of City Council and residents of the neighborhood, is now returning the site to its original residential state.
