This Fresno arrow point was recovered from the Baker Store in Morris County by the Emporia State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) archeology field school in 1973. Archeologists identify Fresno points as being unnotched with a triangular shape. This projectile point likely predates the occupation of the Baker Store. The Baker Store artifact collection was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1993. The Baker Store and nearby house, situated along the Santa Fe trail, were burned in 1862 by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts. The owner, A. I. Baker, was murdered at that time.

Date: 1500-1800 CE
