Shown are three views of the excavation at the Baker House and an artist's rendition of what the house may have looked like when still standing. Shown here are two views of the excavation in progress, a view of the exposed foundation, and the artist's rendition. The excavation at the Baker House in Morris County was undertaken by Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) in 1972 and 1973. The house was burned in 1862 by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts. The collection, along with these photographs, were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1993.
