Butler Reviews

Butler is a very family friendly village. Neighbors always have each others back, and know everyone by name. When somebody goes through a loss in their family the community and church are always there to help with the mourning and arrangements. In another words, when the times get tough you can count on your Butler neighbors to be willing to give you a helping hand. The village holds 4th of July fireworks and a parade along with a village night out at the local park. This gives the small community a chance to have fun together because good communities are there for both fun times and hard times.

The neighbors are very friendly. Some things do arise in the surrounding cities that can be concerning. One thing that a lot of people like is the very accessible park. It has tennis courts, basketball courts, a volleyball court, a couple of baseball diamonds, a horseshoe pit and a big park for kids to play on. It also has a building that can be rented out for parties and a pavilion as well. They also have a softball league that is very fun for adults.
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.
