This lock key was recovered from the Jotham Meeker farmstead site in Franklin County. The key was recovered from the area of the print shop at the site. The key consists of a bow (the portion which is gripped and turned) and a blade (which slides into a keyway, also called a key hole). The site was excavated in 1985 at a Kansas Archeology Training Program field school. Jotham Meeker served as a Baptist missionary among the Ottawa on their reservation.

Date: 1845-1865
