This hair pipe was collected from the Infinity site in Montgomery County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1962. The hair pipe was made from a marine shell, the conch found from Bermuda to Brazil and the Gulf of Mexico. Hair pipes were used to decorate hair, or as necklaces, earrings, and in breast plates. The Infinity site is a multicomponent (multiple occupations) site that was occupied periodically from the late Archaic period through the Historic period, with the Historic artifacts found on the surface.

Date: 1800-1900 CE
