Shown are views of the excavation at the Baker Store and an artist's rendition of a map of the area. Shown are progress shots of the excavations, cellar walls visible after excavation, a group shot of the students, and a map of the house and store that was drawn based on an 1910 interview of a local man. The excavation at the Baker House and Store, in Morris County, was undertaken by Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) in 1972 and 1973. The house and store were burned in 1862 by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts. The collection, along with these photographs was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1993.
