The old Troutman Department Store is now a motorcycle shop.

It is utilized and not boarded up and,hopefully,being well maintained. I am an avid motorcyclist,haven't ridden in awhile,old age crept up on me. Other less conventional businesses might give main street a try. my hometown needs the opportunity to grow and become a vibrant center of commerce once again. I love Butler and Butlerites.

My husband's uncle Bill Robinson was the manager of Troutman's in the 1960's and recently passed away. If you remember him you will find his obituary at this site.

Loved Troutmans at Christmas time! Not as much as Horne's in Pittsburgh, but for Butler, it was alright.
