These cloth fragments were recovered from the 1991 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Hollenberg Pony Express Station in Washington County. Shown is a fragment of a black and white calico (printed cotton fabric) and dotted swiss (muslin fabric decorated with evenly spaced raised dots). The site was the location of a Pony Express station, a stop on the Oregon-California trail, a post office, a blacksmith shop, and a farm with barns and other outbuildings. The site was purchased by the Kansas Legislature in 1941 and is in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1857-1941
