Butler, PA

Butler is a small city with a population of about 14,000. The city is the county seat of Butler County and should not be confused with Butler Township, another municipality in the same county. Butler is located on the west side of Pennsylvania, about 35 miles north of Pittsburgh. This artsy community is home to a large number of historic buildings, many of which are very well-preserved.

Butler is not just a blue-collar or white-collar town. The city has a good mix of local and national businesses, providing jobs of all sorts. The dominant industries in Butler are health care, retail, manufacturing, hospitality and professional services.

Major employers in the area include AK Steel, Armstrong Group of Companies, Butler Memorial Hospital and Butler Health System, and Butler County Community College.
