Waukesha County WI Homes for Sale

Come and see what this charming village has to offer!

Butler is a village in Waukesha County, Wisconsin which was established in 1913. This charming village owes it very existence to the railroad.

In the Fall of 1909, representatives from the Milwaukee, Sparta, and North Western Railway, a division of the Chicago and North Western Railways, paid a visit to farmers on the east side of the 124th Street. The representatives offered to buy the farmers’ farmland to establish railroad yards as an addition to an outer belt line around the City of Milwaukee.

One of the properties that was acquired for the construction of the “New Butler” railroad yard was the farm of George and Jennie Clark, which was brought for $ 18,000,00. The couple reserved the right to move their house off the land before the start of the construction in the spring of 1910.

Their house was moved across the fields on rollers to its present location on the family’s ancestral farm at 128th Street and Hampton Avenue in the center of Butler. The Clarke house is now a public museum dedicated to the settlement of the village of Butler and its connection to the Chicago and North Western Railroad.

The small community of “New Butler” was settled mostly by railroad workers and their families.

When it was incorporated, the village had a population of only 200 people. It grew steadily as the original developers and real estate speculator purchased acres of additional land which will be used for future development based on the activity generated by nearby railroad yards.

In 1926, “New” was dropped from the village’s name. The Village of Butler continued to grow as an incubator for business and industry mainly because of its proximity to the railroad yards.

To this day, residents of Butler Village WI continue to celebrate and promote their history as a railroad town.

People who live in Butler enjoy a small town with the advantages of its close proximity to major interstates and downtown Milwaukee.

There are also many community events like the Christmas Parade, Independence Day Parade, softball leagues, and National Night Out.

The Village of Butler WI is also home to industrial and retail businesses such as Cargill, Western States Envelope, and Molded Rubber and Plastic. Butler balances commercial and residential interests.
