Butler County is located in the southeastern part of Kansas and is named after Andrew Pickens Butler, a distinguished South Carolinian, statesman, and U.S. Senator. Established on August 25, 1855, the county has a rich and diverse history that dates back to Native American tribes like the Osage and the Wichita living in the region before European settlers arrived.

The Kansas-Nebraska Act paved the way for the founding of the territory of Kansas in 1854, and it wasn't long before settlers from the Eastern United States made their way to Butler County. The town of El Dorado became the county seat in 1868 after growing rapidly during the Reconstruction Era. Overcoming numerous challenges such as droughts, fires, and severe weather, the residents of Butler County built a thriving agricultural economy, primarily centered on cattle ranching.

One interesting fact about Butler County is the discovery of oil in the region in the early 20th century. In 1915, the Stapleton oil field ushered in a wave of oil boomtowns and the county's economy shifted to include oil production. By the 1960s, Peter Pan Park in El Dorado had become the largest park in Kansas and boasted facilities for Oil Field Workers. Today, the oil industry is still a significant part of Butler County's economy.

Another fun fact is that Butler County is home to the Kansas Oil Museum, which showcases the region's history and connection to the oil industry, preserving vintage artifacts and telling the stories of the people who shaped its past. In addition to its rich history and cultural heritage, Butler County offers beautiful parks, camping grounds, and opportunities for fishing and hiking, making it a destination for both history enthusiasts and outdoor lovers.
