Canning Jar Closures from the Baker House, 14MO701

Canning Jar Closures from the Baker House, 14MO701
Date: 1862
The canning jar fragments were recovered during excavations at the Baker house in Morris County, undertaken by Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) archeological field school in 1972. The jars were sealed using a thin metal cap with a wax seal inside the groove separating the parallel rings. The site, along the Santa Fe Trail in Morris County, was the location of the Baker house, which burned in 1862, along with the nearby store, during the murder of the proprietor A.I. Baker by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts.


Decorated Bottle and Jar Fragments from the Baker Store, 14MO701

Decorated Bottle and Jar Fragments from the Baker Store, 14MO701
Date: 1862
These three decorated bottle and jar fragments were recovered from the Baker Store in Morris County by an Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) archeological field school in 1973. Two fragments that may have been from jars are decorated with molded swirls. The third fragment is from a bottle that once held hot sauce. The molded decorative style is called Cathedral, as the bottle panels resemble cathedral windows. The Baker Store artifact collection was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1993. The Baker store and nearby house, situated along the Santa Fe trail, were burned in 1862 by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts. The owner, A. I. Baker, was murdered at that time.
