These five buttons were collected from the Plowboy site in Shawnee County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The Plowboy site was home to the Kansa, the Potawatomi, and Euro-Americans. At various times, the site contained a farm, a trading post, and a post office with nearby military trails, Mormon routes, a railroad and the California-Oregon trail. Shown are a calico button with a brass rim, a black two-hole Fish Eye button, a large and a small shell two-hole button, and a blue plastic four-hole sew through button.

Date: 1840-1950
