What a Move to Butler Has to Offer
Butler Pennsylvania is a city of nearly 14,000 residents located 35 miles north of Pittsburgh, serving as the county seat of Butler County. Both the county and the city are named after Maj. Gen. Richard Butler, who died fighting after the Revolutionary War. Most of the early settlers of the Butler region were German, Irish, and Scottish immigrants.
Butler has had a long history of being a manufacturing and industrial center. Some of the first steel railcars in America were built here. The famous financier Diamond Jim Brady started the Standard Steel Car Company in Butler, which later merged with the Pullman Palace Car Company to create Standard-Pullman, perhaps the most well-known name in passenger railcars. So successful was Standard-Pullman that the U.S. government termed it a monopoly and split up the company. The Standard-Pullman plant closed and was demolished in 2005. The site is now the home of the Butler Transit Authority intermodal terminal.
Butler was also the headquarters of American Austin Car Company, which licensed the design of the British Austin car in the early 1930s and later produced the first prototype of what became the American Jeep. But the U.S. Army felt the company lacked the capacity to produce the Jeep in large numbers and awarded the production contract to Willys and Ford instead.
The Butler County Courthouse, built in 1885, is an imposing Victorian Gothic structure that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the tallest building in downtown Butler, and it has an adjoining annex with government offices and courtrooms.
Today, major employers in Butler include AK Steel, Armstrong, and Penn United Technologies. In May 2012, Smithsonian magazine named Butler the seventh-best small town in America to live in.
