These brass keys were recovered by Kansas Historical Society archeologists during excavation at historic Fort Hays in Ellis County. A key consists of a bow (the portion which is gripped and turned) and a blade (which slides into a keyway, also called a key hole). Fort Hays was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and is a State Historic Site.
