A History of the Kidder House Bake Shop

At Town Hall, 322 Concord Road, Sudbury.

Learn about one of Sudbury’s former heritage businesses, the Kidder House Bake Shop. The Kidder House Bake Shop was owned and operated by Theodore and Agnes (Bunny) Brown from 1958-1964 in a c1814 building in Mill Village that was formerly the residence of Captain Enoch Kidder. Sadly the building was lost during the 1999 Mill Village fire, but the commercial block was redeveloped and Duck Soup, Franco’s, and many other businesses stand on the site.

Linda Brown O’Brien and Stephen Brown will talk about their parents’ shop, the significance of the Kidder name, what a day in the life of a baker entailed, and the Bake Shop’s specialties such as donuts, breads, decorated cakes, and baked beans on Saturdays. As the family lived just a few doors down from the Bake Shop on Boston Post Road, they too learned the tools of the trade. Using some of her father’s equipment Linda O’Brien will offer a cake decorating demonstration as part of the talk. After the program attendees can sample some of the Brown family’s special recipes at the refreshment table.
