Shown are five views of cleaned and reconstructed artifacts from the excavations at the Baker house in Morris County. Shown are a tablesetting, smoking pipes, a tintype frame, a bowl and pitcher, and a grouping of scissors, needle, thimble, and lens from a pair of spectacles. The slides were processed in 1972. The artifact collection, along with these photographs, was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1993. The excavation was undertaken by Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) in 1972. The house was burned in 1862 by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts.

Date: 1972
