FLASHBACK: All aboard!


The Butler railroad depot as seen in its former glory was located on the east side of the tracks between Ohio and Pine streets and served many throughout the years with service to destinations near and far. Unfortunately, the structure was sold for scrap and torn down in the very early 1970's. 

Interesting side note- the brick pavement that starts on the Butler square leads west on Ohio street to this exact location. The brick street was done to show a clear and prestigious path from downtown Butler to the train station and vice versa.
