Our Communities
Butler County is unique, in that we are 10 incorporated cities, and two un-incorporated towns (Kesley and Austinville) and all are relatively the same size. We invite you to experience the hospitality and amenities of these communities as you travel, or as you look for a new community to call home. Below you will find a taste of what they have to offer.  The communities that are underlined are linked to their community website.  Click and explore our communities!
