This glass bottle stopper was recovered from the 1991 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Hollenberg Pony Express Station in Washington County. Bottle stoppers were essential to close bottles once they had been opened. Some bottle stoppers were meant to be disposable, while others such as this one could be reused. 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
