Welcome to Butler County, Pennsylvania
Located in Western Pennsylvania, Butler County offers a glimpse of small town life, yet is close to major cities. We are only 25 miles from Pittsburgh, 325 miles from Philadelphia and 380 miles from New York City.
Some of the earliest known history begins with first U.S. President George Washington (painting), who passed through the area around the same time the French & Indian War began. Butler County has plenty of other interesting history, as well. It was founded in 1800 and named for Gen. Richard Butler, a colonial officer in the American Revolution.
Many of the towns hold rich German history; including Harmony, founded in 1804 by the Harmony Society of German Lutheran Separatists who were seeking religious freedom, and Saxonburg, which still maintains the architectural charm of a quaint German hamlet. Saxonburg was co-founded by John Roebling who also invented wire rope and designed the Brooklyn Bridge.
Present day, the county has museums and many historic locations which interpret the area’s past. Special events and reenactments offer living history as well.
Butler County turns green! The snow is finally melting, nature is budding and blooming and new life is in the air! March through June, the county is on defrost and the earth comes alive. This is a great time to get out and to dig in to the past or a hands-on activity.
This quaint village of old brick and log buildings is one of western PA’s most historically important places and is a National Historic Landmark District. This town is packed with history and features shops, restaurants, cafes and more – a great way to spend a day walking about.
