A List of the Towns and Villages of Butler Co., PA


The following is a list of names for villages and towns that have been used in Butler Co. at one time or another, and the current Butler County townships in which they are located. Current Butler Co. Townships are essentially the same as those shown on the 1874 map in the Map Room.

Most of these names are small villages which have never had any legal definition. As such, the location and extent of the area associated with the village name is somewhat nebulous, and you may find various sources using the name with widely varying scopes.

For reference purposes, this list also includes the legally incorporated boroughs of Butler Co., the years in which they were incorporated, and the names of the surrounding townships. (Boroughs are separate political entities and are not part of the townships in which they are located.)

Where a village or borough lies on or near the township line, the names of both townships have often been used.

Where I know that two (or more) names were definitely associated with the same town or village, I have included this information. Where I only suspect that two or more names may refer to the same location, I have chosen to be conservative and have not included that information. Note that many of the 'Village' and 'Village Station'/'Village Junction' pairs are not identical, since, due to grade considerations, the railroad station was often located at some distance from the original village, and a new village would then grow up around the railroad station.

This list is, by the very nature of its subject matter, incomplete. If you'd like to contribute any information, make any corrections, etc., please e-mail us
