Butler County

Butler County is a rich repository of year-round outdoor recreation assets, such as the nearly 17,000-acre Moraine State Park.  Spread out across the county’s nearly 800-square-mile footprint, small towns – many flavored by the distinctive cultures of European immigrant settlers – are visually charming.  For businesses looking for a place to establish operations, Butler County offers a mix of office and distribution developments. Rapid residential development is underway on the county’s southern border in Cranberry Township, which is only a 20-minute drive from downtown Pittsburgh.
