These dish fragments were recovered from the 1991 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Hollenberg Pony Express Station in Washington County. Each has a partial maker's mark on its base. Pottery marks shown are Knowles, Taylor, and Knowles Company of Ohio (1870-1931), Thomas Furnival and Sons of England (1871-1890), and either Thomas Hughes or Thomas Hughes and Son, also of England (1856-1957). 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
