This powder horn was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2021. It has lost its provenience, the record of ownership, and while this is disappointing, it can still be used for teaching purposes and as an example of an early archeological item in Kansas. The powder horn is a container for gunpowder for muzzle-loading guns and was succeeded in popularity by mass-produced powder flasks in the early 1800s.
