In 1807, Christian Winkler came to Salem as the town’s new baker. Upon his arrival, the original bakery was renamed “Winkler Bakery.” Winkler Bakery soon became known for having the finest baked goods, including the original Moravian Cookie. Today, the Winkler Bakery at Old Salem Museums & Gardens continues to produce its famous baked goods.
