This adjustable suspender clip was recovered from the 1991 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Hollenberg Pony Express Station in Washington County. Suspenders were used to hold up trousers. This example is decorated with a dotted border, festoons, and two serpent heads facing a center oval. The site was the location of a pony express station, a stop on the Oregon-California trail, a post office, a blacksmith shop, and a farm with barns and other out buildings. The site was purchased by the Kansas Legislature in 1941 and is in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1857-1930
