This ceramic roof tile came from the Hetherington House in Atchison, Kansas. Webster Wirt Hetherington was a prominent businessman in Atchison. He worked at the Exchange National Bank his family established in 1859. Designed by architect Alfred Meier, the Hetherington house was built between 1879 and 1880 by contractor John Peterson. This tile was donated to the museum when the Kansas Historical Society was considering making the Hetherington House one of its historic sites.

Date: between 1879 and 1880
