  Brief History from Kansas State Historical Society:

 Butler County was organized on February 11, 1859, by William Hildebrand; Jerry Conner; Captain J. Cracklin; Henry Martin;
 Martin Vaught; Samuel Stewart; William Beemis; Jacob Carey and William Crimble. It was named for Andrew Pickens
 Butler, Senator from South Carolina, and contains the cities of Andover, Augusta, Benton, Cassoday, Douglass, Elbing,
 El Dorado, Lastham, Leon, Potwin, Rose Hill, Towanda and Whitewater.

 The discovery of oil in 1915 made the county one of the largest oil producers in the state.

Some of the files linked to in the below areas are somewhat large pdf  files.  They may take some time to load. 
  I have split some pdf files into multiple files in an attempt to improve the load speed.
