This button is a souvenir from Kanawha, Iowa's 'Diamond Jubilee Celebration' in 1974. 'Diamond Jubilee,' in this context, refers to the town's 75th founder's day celebration. The locomotive train symbolizes Kanawha's connection to the burgeoning railroad industry in the late 19th ce.—in 1899, the town was founded once a newly constructed railroad had arrived from Belmond, Iowa.
