Butler County History: 

Butler County is located in the northeast part of Iowa. The county was created in 1851 and named after General William O. Butler. He was a Kentucky statesman and officer in the Mexican-American war. In 1854, the county accumulated enough people to create its own local government. The very first court proceedings were held in a resident’s log cabin. The new courthouse, though, was built in 1975, is set on the highest point in Butler County, and was said to be “sound, functional, and aesthetically pleasing”.

Today, Butler County has a myriad of outdoor activities to entertain your family including the Heery Wood Nature Center where you can learn about the environment and participate in outdoor recreation. Additional attractions include the yearly county fair, and many prime hunting, fishing, and snowmobiling areas. You can find more information about Butler County, Iowa and the history of Butler County on the counties Wikipedia page.
