When I say Butler is a small town in western PA, I do mean a small town. One main drag, a couple of stop lights and small mostly family owned businesses dot the downtown. Just a mile outside of this metropolis it’s a landscape of farmland and old homesteads.
Butler holds one great secret – it’s the birthplace of the Jeep. Every June all the little Jeeps come to pay their respects at the Bantam Jeep festival. There is a multitude of activities for Jeep owners to participate in to flex their Jeep muscles. I had the opportunity to attend the Jeep Invasion, and it really is like an invasion this small town; absolutely astonishing how many of one badge can find their way together. We all know I’m a ford truck girl, but yea – this was cool.
