Butler is truly "A Good Place to Start and a Great Place to Stay". I have lived here for as long as I remember. The location between bigger cities makes it ideal for commutes to work and shopping. Having St. Agnes Parish and School be a central part of Butler, WI makes it a perfect place to get to know neighbors and raise children.
