The Butler County Chapter NSDAR was first organized in March of 1950. The decision to name the organization the Butler County Chapter was to honor General Richard P. Butler for whom the county was named. General Butler was born in Ireland, later coming to Pennsylvania and was one of five sons who participated in the Revolutionary War.

The following is a list of the first officers of the chapter: Organizing Regent: Mrs. Vernon Hardcastle; chapter Regent: Hattie Berry Flener; Recording Secretary: Martha Spradlin; Corresponding Secretary: Dorothy Kent; Treasurer: Grace Martin; Registrar: Lucille Hood; Historian: Sallie Martin; Chaplain: Mable Householder; Librarian: Ethel J. Knight.

On December 13, the death of a member brought total membership to eleven. The chapter had one year to increase. Another extension was granted until December 13, 1967, however with no increase the chapter automatically disbanded on that date and all became members- at- large. The chapter applied for and received permission to reorganize on December 10, 1971. Since that time the chapter has been very active in working on NSDAR goals and activities. Regents since the reorganization include: Dorothy Kent, Jean Hocker, Ione Duke (2 terms), Christine Coleman, Alice Forgy (2 terms), Lois Russ, Jane Smith, Maxine Minton, Linda Deweese, Genevieve Jakle, Georgia Romans, Cynthia Hensley, Jane Smith, Jennifer Odle, Georgia Romans, Lynda Knight, Jane Eaton-Henderson, Georgia Romans, and the current Regent Jane Smith.
