The conservative family owned paper was founded in 1903 with the merging of the Butler County Observer (originally the Evans City Times) and the original Butler Eagle. The newspaper has been owned by the Wise family since its inception. The art deco office building was constructed in 1924, and is still used by the Eagle. It is located at 114 West Diamond Street in downtown Butler. In 2003, printing operations were moved to a new facility in the Island neighborhood of Butler. The Erie Times and Uniontown Herald-Standard are printed here and delivered to their respective towns daily.
The Butler Eagle owns other publications: Pittsburgh City Paper and Butler Business Matters. The Butler Eagle also owns an advertising company Harmony Outdoor Ads.
