This lock key was recovered from the Jotham Meeker farmstead site in Franklin County. The site was excavated in 1985 at a Kansas Archeology Training Program. Jotham Meeker served as a Baptist missionary among the Ottawa on their reservation. The key was recovered from the area of the print shop at the site. The key consists of a bow (the portion which is gripped and turned) and a blade (which slides into a keyway, also called a key hole).

Date: 1845-1865
