Brass Belt Buckle from Fort Hays, 14EL301

Brass Belt Buckle from Fort Hays, 14EL301
Date: 1867-1889
This center bar belt buckle was recovered during excavations at historic Fort Hays, in Ellis County, by Kansas Historical Society archeologists in 1966. Formerly the buckle was shiny brass, as is shown by the back, but at some point the prong was painted pink. The buckle measures 1 3/4" by 1 7/16". Fort Hays was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and is a State Historic Site.


Buckle from the Canville Trading Post, 14NO396

Buckle from the Canville Trading Post, 14NO396
Date: 1847-1872
This cuprous (contains copper) buckle was found at the Canville Trading Post in Neosho County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1994. The centerbar buckle is decorated with a floral motif and would have been quite a fancy buckle when new and shiny. The Canville Trading Post was established in 1847 by A. B. Canville. When the Osage reservation land was ceded to the United States in 1870, the Osage left for Oklahoma and Canville followed in 1872.

United States Army Belt Buckle Plate from Fort Zarah, 14BT301

United States Army Belt Buckle Plate from Fort Zarah, 14BT301
Date: 1864-1868
This partial brass belt buckle plate was excavated at Fort Zarah in 1969 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. The fragment is the inner oval of what was a rectangular belt buckle plate. The artifact is quite heavy as the backing appears to be of lead. The fort was a small outpost on the Santa Fe trail in Barton County occupied from 1864 to 1869. The trading post building within the fort, where this buckle was located, burned in 1868.
