These four buttons were recovered from the Martindale Cabin in Greenwood County. From left to right are a brass button front with a train engine decoration, a metal "RED SEAL" overall button, a brass overall button with a bullseye pattern, and a brass shank button decorated with molded squares and a faceted glass center. The Martindale Cabin was built of stone for William Martindale in 1857 and was occupied by the Martindale family until 1869. Later the cabin was used for both living and storage purposes.
