This paper doll was found in the southwest room of the East Building at the Shawnee Indian Mission in Johnson County. The Mission was built in 1839 for the Shawnee Tribe and closed in 1862. The life of the building did not end there. During the Civil War troops were quartered in the Mission, and later it saw use as a dance hall, dairy bottling plant, apartments, and a boarding house until become property of the state in 1927. The paper doll appears to be dressed in a below the knee skirt, dress, or jacket with ankle-length pants or pantaloons showing beneath it.

Date: 1839-1927
