Butler County Historical Society

The Butler County Historical Society collects, preserves, and interprets Butler County’s rich heritage for the educational benefit of the public. The Society was founded in 1927, when a group of residents met to discuss ways to preserve local history. In 1960, it was incorporated as a private non-profit entity. In 1991, it was designated the official historical organization of Butler County. At its office, the Society maintains a resource library of historical records and documents relating to the county that can be used by the public for research. The Society also owns and operates three historic sites: Cooper Cabin Pioneer Homestead, the Little Red School House, and the Senator Walter Lowrie House.
