This malted milk jar was collected 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. Horlick's Malted Milk was meant to be served hot. It was manufactured by James and William Horlick at Racine, Wisconsin. The jar was manufactured by the Hazel-Atlas Glass Co., of Wheeling, West Virginia.

Date: 1920-1950
