History of the First Butler County Historical Society

By Richard N. Piland

It was surprising to learn recently that there was an earlier Butler County Historical Society.  On June 14, 1901, a call was issued to people interested in forming a historical society to attend a June 18 meeting held at the county courthouse.  At that first meeting officers and directors were elected and several committees were formed to develop a constitution, secure meeting space and lobby for the support of county commissioners.

The six men who formed the first Butler County Historical Society were community leaders of such stature that it is surprising the organization was not continued.
