Visit the Keep Homestead Museum and view the one of the largest collections of Antique and Vintage Buttons on display in the Northeast

The buttons are exhibited on a rotating basis, but on permanent display is the fantastic collection of Mosaic Buttons. They depict flowers, birds, animals, people, common buildings and not-so-common building scenes.

Presently, along with the Mosaic Buttons, are buttons from the Art Nouveau era. There are Gibson Girl Buttons, Enamels and Gay Nineties Buttons as well as Opera Buttons, Storybook Buttons and other Figural Buttons manufactured during this time period.

Also, there are buttons of Historical Significance, Military, Political and Colonial Buttons. This only a sampling of what you can expect to see when you visit Myra's Button room at the Keep Homestead Museum (KHM).


Below are other types of buttons in the collection:
