Butler first filed plans to divide its area into building lots, or plats, in 1853. The town became the county seat of Bates County in 1856, and a 50-by-50-foot brick courthouse was established in Butler shortly thereafter. The courthouse was destroyed by fire in 1861 as a result of events during the Civil War, but was reestablished on two separate occasions – 1869 and 1902. The 1902 edition stands in use as the Bates County courthouse to this day.
