This stone pipe fragment was recovered from the Blue Earth village site and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1880. Blue Earth village was a Kansa Indian village in Pottawatomie County. Many lodge depressions were still visible on the surface in the 1880s. The elbow style pipe was made on soft, easy to carve stone and may have had an out-flaring rim. The pipe was glued together prior to its being donated.

Date: 1790-1830
