This door lock, hinge fragment, and hook was recovered in 1966 from excavations at historic Fort Hays in Ellis County by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. The lock would have been set within the body of door. The butt hinge has a fragment of the pintle and leaf. The hook was cleaned by electrolysis, which passes an electrical current through a liquid solution to separate the rust from the artifact. Fort Hays was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and is a State Historic Site.

Date: 1867-1889
