History: A typical button you would have found on a Dutch settler's garments.  This button 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 piece is not original to the Old Stone House, it is a typical object you would have found in a Dutch house in the 18th Century.
