These shell buttons were just a few of those recovered during excavations in 2014 of the Adair Cabin site, home of Reverend Samuel and Florella Brown Adair and their family, in Osawatomie, Kansas. The buttons include a small burned 2-hole button, likely a child's, three recessed 2- hole buttons, and a single fish eye 2-hole button. Osawatomie and the Adairs were much involved with the abolitionist movement during the "Bleeding Kansas" years.

Date: 1855-1912
