This nearly complete shoe was recovered from excavations by Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew at the Shawnee Methodist Mission in Johnson County. This high-top shoe features a square toe style that first became popular in the 1830s. The Mission was established in 1839 and operated as a school for children of the Shawnee Tribe until 1854. It then passed into private ownership and served different functions until it was acquired by the state of Kansas in 1927.

Date: 1820-1854
