History:  

BUTTERFIELD Township, organized in January 1872, and its city in section 27, which was platted by the St. Paul and Sioux City Railroad on September 13, 1880, and was incorporated February 26, 1895, were named "for William Butterfield, the owner of the townsite and its first settler" (Stennett, Place Names of the Chicago and Northwestern Railways, 1908, p. 50). Its post office was established in 1879; most of the early settlers were German-speaking Mennonite immigrants from Austria-Hungary and Russia who came in the mid-1870s.

Butterfield Threshing Bee

3rd full weekend of August.

The BTA and the Threshing Bee started in 1966/67, with the Threshing Bee beginning first. After the event which caused over a thousand people to show up (and at that time, it was just a one-day show) the guys then decided to form a committee to see about putting on a show annually. Almost forty years later (in 2006), the show is still going strong. The committee includes nine men who each are responsible for different areas of the show and the grounds. Please click HERE (not yet linked, sorry) to see a history of the bee as told in the souvenir paper that the Observer/Advocate prints yearly for those attending the bee.

Take a step back in time to the days of the pioneers - when the land lay untamed and the promise of a new life in a new country thrilled the hearts of the European immigrants to this area. buildings include a log cabin, general store, blacksmith shop, the original First Presbyterian Church, Tuberg Mill and many more.
