This pipe was given to the donor's father in 1880, while working as a cowboy on the Chisolm Trail. In 1955 the pipe was donated to the Kansas Historical Society. The soft fine grained material of pipestone enabled the pipe's maker to carve it into its final shape. Pipes were used during trade negotiations and to mark special occasions.

Date: 1867-1884
