Butler, the county seat of Taylor County, honors General William Orlando Butler, a distinguished hero of the Mexican War.

Held annually in the heart of downtown Butler, the Countryside Festival gives residents a chance to celebrate folk culture. It includes an arts and crafts show, a parade, live entertainment, and other "ole time" activities like greased pig contests, sack rages and apple bobbing.
