These three overall buttons were recovered from the Thomas Johnson/Henry Williams Dugout site during the 2006 excavations by Washburn University and the 2007 Kansas Archeology Training Program. The collections from Washburn University were later donated to the Kansas Historical Society. This domestic site was related to the settlement of Nicodemus, Kansas, an all black community in western Kansas. The Fitz button was manufactured by Burnham, Munger and Root Company of Kansas City, Missouri, between 1893 and the 1950s. The two Lee Brand buttons were manufactured by the H. D. Lee Merchantile Company of Salina, Kansas, starting in 1912.

Date: 1877-1912
