Butler County Courthouse in Allison

The Butler County Courthouse was built in 1975, designed by Cervetti-Weber & Assoc. Butler County’s first courthouse was in the town of Clarksville in 1856. Following an election to settle disputes over the location of the county seat, another courthouse was built in Butler Center in 1860. Eventually the county seat moved to Allison, where the third courthouse was built in 1881. The current courthouse was built on the same grounds. The round cupola from the second courthouse was preserved, and placed on top of the Butler County Hall of Fame.
