Butler County Courthouse


category : Other Attractions

One of the county?s foremost active landmarks, this grand, four-story structure is an outstanding example of Second Empire architecture built in the late nineteenth century. The cornerstone was placed in 1885, and the $305,000 structure was occupied February 4, 1889.

The courthouse was considered grandiose at the time it was built and showed great confidence in the future to build such a big and fine building with its use of imported granite, marble and plate glass, along with solid black walnut for trim and doors. It has survived fire, flood, numerous storms, other natural and man-caused problems, several cosmetic alterations and at least one ghost.

Parts of the building are still used for court hearings. Open Monday-Friday 8:30AM-4:30PM.


Hours: Monday: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Tuesday: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
