This coffee mill fragment was recovered from the Havana Stage Station site along the Santa Fe trail in Osage County. Coffee mills are used to grind roasted coffee beans prior to brewing, but can also be used to grind other substances. This fragment is made of cast iron and was part of the grinding mechanism. 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 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school in 1995.

Date: 1856-1880
