These ceramic pipe bowl and stem, from two different pipes, were recovered during excavations at the Union Pacific Railroad Depot in Lawrence, Kansas. The pipe bowl shows no traces of having been smoked. The pipe stem is made of white clay, sometimes called pipe clay, and has been refit. The stem shows a partial decoration on each side. This site served not only as a depot, but also had dwellings, a meat market, a saloon, a possible boarding house or hotel, a grain elevator and other commercial buildings located within the project area excavated in 1995 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists.

Date: 1869-1920
