Return Trip to House I “Found when Lost”

Posted by on November 10, 2014

I returned for a second scouring of the late-1800s house built on the foundation of a 1740s-era house (see an account of the initial trip here) and made some more period finds, including a large concave button with what appears to be an “S” on the front; two colonial shoe buckles (one with chape intact, one just the frame), and various flat buttons. What a great property, not to mention always-gracious hosts!
