This horseshoe was recovered from the Havana Stage Station site along the Santa Fe trail in Osage County. This horseshoe style is called "regular" and is what was used on most horses to support the hoof. It is complete with a groove, called fullers, that allow for the nail to be driven into the hoof. Two horseshoe nail fragments are present. The Havana Stage Station was built in 1858 and was used as a farmstead after the station was closed. The site was a focus of the 1995 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school in 1995.

Date: 1858-1880
