Hundreds of onlookers gathered yesterday for the opening of the restored bakehouse and museum.
Commemorations were followed by a tour of the 111-year-old building and afternoon tea.
Attendees were able to pick up a fresh loaf of bread as local bakers Dennis Kirkpatrick and Ric Hunt had the oven working overtime.
Plans to restore the building and its brick and stone oven began in 1991.
"It's an amazing restoration.''
Mr Gunn said the bakehouse committee was not expecting such a significant turnout.
"People have come a long way, so it does mean a lot.''
Although tearooms continued on the premises, the bakery ceased operation in the 1950s when local baker Frank Vercoe consolidated his entire operation in Roxburgh with new electric ovens.
The bakehouse was built in 1908 by Louis and Rosa Faigan, who ran the grocery store next door.
The business later passed to Nathaniel Campbell and then to Mr Vercoe.
An original bakehouse cookbook, which included recipes written in the original pen and ink, was also given to the committee.
Millers Flat Bakehouse Restoration Trust chairwoman Betty Adams said the book was a treasure, as she reeled off old recipes, including tomato cups, anchovy eggs and sherry fritters.
The bakehouse museum is open for three hours most days, and the kitchen will open occasionally.
