These four buttons were recovered at excavations in 1988 during a joint venture between Kansas Historical Society archeologists, Kansas Anthropological Association volunteers, and the City of Olathe. The buttons include a bone 2-hole trouser button, a white glass 4-hole dish button, a fragment of a black 2-hole button with a series of molded decorations around the edge and sew-through holes, and a black glass faceted button front. The site, 14JO356, consisted of the residence and out buildings built by James and Lucinda Mahaffie in 1858. The farmstead later served as a stagecoach stop on the Santa Fe trail.

Date: 1858-1886
