These four medicine bottles were recovered from the Martin Farmstead in Republic County. From left to right is a bottle manufactured by the Obear-Nestor Glass Company of East Saint Louis, Illinois (post 1894); two bottles made by the Knox Glass Bottle Company of Know, Pennsylvania (1924-1968); and a bottle manufactured by the Owens Illinois Glass Company of Toledo, Ohio (1929-1954). All of the bottles have graduated metric and American dosage scales. The site was the location of an archeological salvage project in 1992, due to impending highway construction, and is representative of the lifestyle of rural Kansans and Americans of the late 19th- to early 20th-centuries.

Date: 1894-1968
