History:

Fragments of a typical buckle a Dutch settler might have worn.  This buckle was housed in an old display case in the original exhibit of the Old Stone House Museum and most likely was donated by a former board member. Although the pieces are not original to the Old Stone House, these are typical objects you would have found in a Dutch house in the 18th Century.
