After 73 years as a vital part of Hartsville, Butler High School was closed in 1983.
Butler Heritage Foundation was organized in the fall of 1991 by Butler High School alumni, former faculty, and concerned citizens, who developed a plan to save and restore Butler for public use as a community center.
Each July, Butler Heritage Week is celebrated to focus attention on Butler's legacy and the Butler Heritage Foundation's goals.
We, the members, friends and supporters of Butler Heritage Foundation would be remiss not to take this opportunity to thank the Byerly Foundation, State Senator Gerald Malloy and State Representative Jay Lucas for their assistance, support and interest in helping us to reach our objectives. May God bless.
