Additionally, Butler is home to one of the original Ford dealers, Pullman Park, and the collegiate summer baseball team called the Butler Blue Sox.

Throughout most of its history, the city of Butler played a significant role in the steel, railroad cars, and automotive industries. In 1902, the Standard Steel Car Company opened one of its largest railcar manufacturing facilities in Butler, building some of the first all steel rail cars. In 1934, the Standard Steel Car Company merged with the Pullman Palace Car Company to create Pullman-Standard, a monopoly that was eventually ended by the government. The Pullman-Standard plant closed in 1982, and then was demolished in 2005. Today, the site is occupied by a strip mall, as well as the new Butler Transit Authority intermodal facility. Another notable business in Butler was the American Austin Car Company (1929–1941). The modern Jeep was created by the company when it was later called American Bantam Car Company.
