This stove or range door was recovered from the Plowboy site in Shawnee County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The Plowboy site was home to the Kansa, the Potawatomi, and Euro-Americans. At various times, the site contained a farm, a trading post, and a post office with nearby military trails, Mormon routes, a railroad and the California-Oregon trail. The Baldwin and Graham Company ironworks operated out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from 1829 to at least 1900. The door's donor painted the molded lettering and embellishments.

Date: 1829-1900
