s n o i t c Attra Let’s go back to a simpler time… get the family together for a Sunday drive. Butler County has plenty of curious and quirky sites, but we’ve chosen some real “sights” that are worth a drive-by or even a full-fledged visit. So grab the camera, and get ready for an adventure! Have you ever seen a stealth bomber? Oddly enough, if you drive north of Butler on Route 8, you’ll find yourself closer than you’ll probably ever be to one. Playthings, Etc., credibly called “the world’s coolest toy store,” is housed in one of the most unique buildings you may ever see. This roadside attraction is definitely worth a stop inside. The stealth bomber theme continues inside the intriguing front doors, and you’re in for a shopping experience you won’t soon forget.

You’ll find several murals in downtown Butler, including this one across from Pullman Park which pays tribute to baseball/history. Something neat to check out behind Pullman Park is a swinging wire rope bridge over Sullivan Run. A visit to The Snowman in Portersville will make you feel like you’re in Wonderland. He’s quite large, and next to him, you’re quite small. But the awesome part is, he serves up treats! Twenty-one flavors of shave ice to be exact. Near the intersection of Three Degree Road and Renfrew Road you’ll find some large and ominous samurai sculptures. We’re not sure why they’re there, which is part of the appeal! Mars is the fourth planet from the sun, right? Well, you need not travel that far. Just head east of Cranberry Township to Mars, Pennsylvania. You’ll find a spaceship parked in the town square, and maybe a few Martians peeking out of store windows.

For a glance of “the Big Apple,” all you have to do is head to Saxonburg. There is a sizable replica of the Brooklyn Bridge in the town’s park. While it is quite unusual, it is not without reason. The town’s founder, John Roebling, designed the [real] bridge and invented wire rope which was used to build it. Picture this... a stone fence surrounding a grassy area. Inside, the only thing you will find is one tombstone. To get inside the fence, you must move one ton of stone. Seem odd? Well, that’s the case at the Harmony Society Cemetery. Though there’s only one marker, about 100 people are buried there. And the one ton of stone is actually a revolving gate which moves pretty easily. You’ll just have to see it to believe it! Check out our map and pin your favorites!

< This guy, created by artist Bill Secunda, serves as a greeter at the West New Castle Street Plaza in downtown Butler. You’ll find him during the summer when Butler Downtown often hosts concerts and other fun entertainment.

Hippies Welcome! For an offbeat experience, stop by our hippie-friendly shops and eateries! For all of your tie-dye and earthy needs, visit Benjamin Beetle in Butler, Heather’s in Slippery Rock and Harmony Emporium (in Harmony). If you’re looking for vegan-friendly eats, Randita’s in Saxonburg is a great choice. Last but not least, North Country Brewing Company in Slippery Rock has a beer dubbed “Stinky Hippie,” and has a sign that instructs “Hippies use side door.” Even if you’re living life in another generation, you’re welcome in Butler County! 866-856-8444 / www.VisitButlerCounty.com / 2014 Official Visitors Guide 11

Next stop is the county seat and birthplace of the Jeep, Butler. The Butler County Historical Society has preserved the town’s automotive history, local genealogy and other interesting facets of the past. The Lowrie/Shaw House serves as both the historical society’s office and a museum showcasing this once affluent home.


Artsy & Amazing You don’t have to head to the city to experience top-notch arts. We’ve got them right here in Butler County! From theater to visual arts, and even ancient art and the unique art of glass blowing, prepare to be amazed by the local talent here in western Pennsylvania.

SUCCOP THEATER Celebrating our 12 th Season

Color, texture and creativity are showcased at Bottlebrush: A Gallery for the Arts, the Saxonburg Area Artist Co-op and The Art Center. Located right on Main Street in downtown Butler, The Art Center boasts over 5,000 square feet of gallery space. You won’t find that anywhere else around! In addition to rotating exhibits, the galleries all offer special events and programs to the public. Unleash your inner Picasso!

Encore! - Pittsburgh Philharmonic Friday, March 21, 2014 at 8:00 pm

Another art you can experience first-hand is the art of glass blowing. Located in the northern part of the county, The Glass Blowing Center is a lovely shop and educational facility. Whether you want to try it yourself in a class or just witness it in a demonstration, glass blowing is a fun experience to add to your “bucket list.” Something else we recommend to everyone near and far, is to visit the Maridon Museum. Located in downtown Butler, this gem is a high-caliber display of ancient Asian art and German Meissen porcelain. It’s fascinating to learn that everything in the museum was once displayed in the home of one woman, Mary Hulton Phillips, who gifted her collection to Butler. Speaking of “gifted,” we have some very gifted performing artists here in Butler County. Local ensembles like the Butler County Symphony Orchestra, Musical Theatre Guild, Sing Hosanna!, the Butler Notables, Butler Little Theatre and the Summer Dramatics Project take their talent to the stage to provide pleasant music and inspiring theatrical performances.

A Valentine Affair August Wilson Center Dance Ensemble Friday, February 14, 2014 at 8:00 pm

Last but not least are our theaters which host both local arts and worldrenowned entertainment. Butler County Community College’s Succop Theater offers a monthly performing arts series during the school year, as does Slippery Rock University (SRU). SRU also has a proactive fine and performing arts department which puts on spectacular performances. In Zelienople, the beautifully-restored Strand Theater not only shows movies, but hosts Broadway concert series and other top acts. Prepare your eyes and ears for an amazing artsy experience in Butler County. To learn more, be sure to visit our calendar of events at VisitButlerCounty.com.

A Tour of Harmony H

armony is the site of western Pennsylvania’s first National Historic Landmark District, including more than 50 buildings and retaining the architectural character of an old German village. Harmony was founded in 1804 by the Harmony Society of German Lutheran Separatists seeking religious freedom. They quickly became 19th century America’s most successful communal group; however, their belief in celibacy eventually led to their demise. In 1815, Mennonite blacksmith Abraham Ziegler became the “second founder,” leading resettlement of Mennonite families. Today the town is packed with charm and history – a great way to spend a day walking about.

Harmony is a town of many events – historical events, concerts, fashion shows, knitting classes and more. Be sure to check the calendar on VisitButlerCounty.com before you visit, and don’t miss biggies like the Harmony Bluegrass Festival, German Christmas Market and Silvester New Year’s Eve Celebration.

Tantalizing & Tasty Local Chefs Make Butler County a Culinary Destination

Crispy Braised Pork Belly with Lo Mein Noodle Slaw and Asian Vinegar BBQ Sauce from The Chop Shop in downtown Butler

Thanks to a few good men who believe the area was underserviced in fine dining, Butler County has become a tantalizing culinary destination. Several expert chefs have selected this area to open phenomenal restaurants and live out their dreams. “My goal was to open my own restaurant before I turned 30. Three weeks before my 30th birthday, I was able to open The Chop Shop. I wanted to be in downtown Butler so I could open a restaurant that was fun and fresh, kind of like the places you would find on Forbes Avenue in Oakland or on the South Side. I felt Butler had been missing that when I was growing up here. I also wanted to help in revitalizing our downtown, so people [see] what it could be.” – Chef Bill Atkinson Another perk to Butler County is that it’s located closer to the farmers and away from the hustle and bustle, according to Chef Fiore Moletz. Known for Burgh’ers Restaurant in the town of Harmony, Fiore recently opened Della Terra Italian Bistro right next door, getting back to his roots in Italian fine dining. To him and many of our other top chefs, it’s no secret that there is no substitute for fresh ingredients.

ECHO’s lamb pappardelle is one of their signature dishes. The lamb comes from Pure Bred Lamb in Waynesburg, PA, and the pappardelle (pasta) is made in-house. The dish also contains white asparagus, spinach, roasted tomatoes and a rich lamb demi-glace.

“Stock is the foundation of quality savory cooking. There are better storemade products available than used to be, but there is no substitute for making it from scratch.” - Chef Brian Hammond

Chef Brian Hammond, owner of Restaurant ECHO, stated, “The herbs we grow are some of my favorites; they lend themselves to savory foods, cocktails, desserts and pastries. They go everywhere.” ECHO takes the concept of farm-to-fork one step further by actually growing products on-site, even harvesting their own honey. The new-American cuisine at Restaurant ECHO is inspired by Hammond’s years working at Michelin-starred restaurants and time spent training with renowned chef Rick Bayless. For us ordinary cooks, Chef Bill recommends tasting everything. “Cooking is about applying time and heat to something to get a desired outcome. Use your senses of smell, sight and taste. They will tell you if you are doing something right or wrong.” In a slightly different category, Hotel Saxonburg has an owner separate of its executive chef. However they’re no stranger to excellence. Chef Alan Green believes in using fresh herbs and always respecting the ingredients. People travel to the restaurant not only for a tasty meal, but because they feel truly welcome and comfortable. In fact, all of the chefs take pride in their hospitality and the atmosphere of their restaurants. When you come to Butler County, you can expect an exceptional dining experience, not only at these featured eateries, but all around the county. See our Dining Comparison Chart on pages 34-35 for more information. < Go behind the scenes at ECHO! 866-856-8444 / www.VisitButlerCounty.com / 2014 Official Visitors Guide 17

The Great Outdoors

Gorgeous & Green Want to know what’s fabulous about Butler County? The answer is simple – Moraine State Park and all of our other great greenspace. It’s simply gorgeous all year long! And we’re not the only ones who feel that way... Moraine State Park alone receives more than two million visitors annually.

Awesome Autumn

Not only is the fall foliage in Butler County superb and spectacular, but everything about autumn has a special magic – pumpkin-spiced everything, colorful trees, crisp and cool air... Even simple tasks such as driving become more enjoyable. Try a drive-it-yourself tour, such as Washington’s Trail or the Barn Trail. Get spooked at a haunted attraction. Indulge in pumpkin-flavored treats. Enjoy a hayride to choose a pumpkin straight out of the field. And be sure to savor your last chance to partake in outdoor activities like hiking, biking and camping before the cold weather hits. Can you imagine hiking 4,600 miles? That’s how long the North Country Trail is. It’s the longest National Scenic Trail in the U.S. A very beautiful piece of the trail stretches through Moraine State Park and Jennings Environmental Education Center.

“I love the recreational opportunities. There are lots of hiking trails to be explored. There is Preston Park, Todd Sanctuary, Butler County Community College, Jennings, Succop Conservancy, Butler/ Freeport Trail, and Moraine. There are activities to do year-round at Moraine.” - Laura, Facebook Fan ...................................

Preston Park

Surround Yourself with Nature

Preston Park is Butler Township’s 88-acre English garden.

Dr. Frank and Mrs. Jane Preston deeded the estate, an area of wilderness and tranquility, to the township. Here, Dr. Preston, a glass scientist, ornithologist, and ecologist, created a place to live, work, and enjoy nature. Unique vegetation, fields of well-maintained prairie grass, ponds, an abundance of wildlife, two pedestrian bridges, an arboretum of 40 different species of pine trees, several state champion trees, and 50 acres of second-generation forest make Preston a destination attraction. Tree shaded picnic tables, gently sloped, well-marked trails, and a dog-friendly area add to the park’s public appeal. Other points of interest – the Compass Rose, the lily pond, the hacienda, the iron gates, the cathedrals – have a story to tell and must be seen to be appreciated. Recognized by the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission and the National Park Service for its historical significance, Preston Park is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Plan to visit soon. Retreat to nature, enjoy the mystique, and let the outdoors surround you. For additional information or to request a group tour, visit www.butlertwp.org or call (724) 283-3430 x212

Birding in Butler Whether you’re a birding enthusiast or just getting started in bird watching endeavors, there are plenty of avian friends to be spotted all across the county. Thanks to groups like the Bartramian Audubon Society, many native plant and animal communities have been preserved and protected. In and around Slippery Rock, top birding sites include Wolf Creek Narrows Natural Area, State Game Lands 95, Moraine State Park, the Birdwatcher’s Store and Jennings Environmental Education Center. The Cerulean Warbler is known to make its home south of the Monroe Road trailhead of the Butler-Freeport Trail. A variety of other birds can also be seen along the trail, including herons, Belted Kingfishers, Scarlet Tanagers and Indigo Buntings. Audubon’s Succop Conservancy features two ponds, walking trails, gardens and open natural space, making it an excellent site for birdwatching. Last but not least, Todd Nature Reserve has some of the best bird habitat and most interesting scenery in the area. As for the eagles... they have made a comback in Butler County and can be seen at Moraine State Park and State Game Lands 95.

“ ” They stand at the corner of South Eberhart Road and Highland Avenue – the two looming towers. They are gates to nowhere – no driveway, no house – an entranceway to a mansion never built. Yet, Butler Township residents know that behind those familiar gates is a land of mystery and nature – trails to be explored, landscape to be enjoyed, and trees not to be found anywhere else in Pennsylvania. - Tony Stagno, Butler Township Newsletter - 2011

What’s in a Name? Moraine State Park was named for the geological feature “moraine” which is accumulated debris left behind by a glacier. Glacial evidence still exists today in the Jacksville Esker (locally known as the Miller Esker). An esker forms when meltwater drains into a glacier through fractures and flows through ice tunnels at the base of the glacier. Sand and gravel deposited along the tunnel floor remain as a long ridge when the ice melts. Esker sediment is deposited in a channel confined within the ice, rather than in a channel eroded into the ground. The Jacksville Esker is six miles long and has a marked portion open to the public. For directions and more natural history, take the park’s “Trail of Geology” selfguided tour. Another drive-it-yourself tour that will take you by the esker is our Butler County Barn Trail. The Miller Farm has a barn in front of the esker (thus the portion nicknamed “Miller Esker”).

Butler-Freeport Trail Butler County’s Only Rails-to-Trails Trail Through the years, the thunder of trains and the hum of trolley cars have been replaced by the quiet crunching of crushed limestone. The Butler-Freeport Community Trail offers a scenic biking and walking path from Butler to Freeport in the southeastern corner of the county. The 21-mile trail is now completed with solid improved surface from Freeport to Butler for the first time since its inception in 1992. The City of Butler has access on Herman Road/ Zeigler Avenue. Further construction is planned for 2014 to bring the trail into Father Marinaro Park. This project includes a bridge over a creek, thus putting trail riders into the city without navigating a busy roadway.

The prairie is closer than you may think! No need to head west – Butler County has the only protected prairie in the state at Jennings Environmental Education Center. During late July through early August, the prairie blooms with stunning purple flowers. It’s a mustsee spectacle.

If you love the great outdoors, it’s probably safe to assume you’d enjoy camping during your visit. Butler County has many scenic campgrounds offering a variety of accommodations. Rent a cabin by the lake, go primitive in a tent, relax in your RV, or try something new, like a yurt. See our comparison chart on page 30 and our campground listings on page 31.
