The site of the former Worsley building is important to the history of Butler and, when presented with an opportunity to preserve the feel of the area, Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau bought the site.
The county tourism bureau purchased the corner lot property in the City of Butler for $199,000 last week from the Worsley family. Cohen explained that the money was available due to the organization being “fiscally sound.”
Worsley’s House of Color, which sold paint and wallpaper, sat on North Main Street in Butler for decades, before it closed in 2014. The building was then heavily damaged by fire and subsequently torn down in 2016.
