Central Butte is a town in Saskatchewan, Canada, approximately 200 kilometres from Saskatoon, Regina and Swift Current and 100 kilometres from Moose Jaw. Thunder Creek, a river that flows into Moose Jaw, begins south of the community. The town is served by the Central Butte Airport (TC LID: CJC4).

History[edit]

The first settlers arrived to farm in the Central Butte area in 1905, the same year Saskatchewan became a province. In 1906 a store and post office were established. A railway from Moose Jaw made it to the Central Butte area at the end of 1914, meaning the 48-mile long trips to Craik for supplies were no longer necessary. After the railway arrived, a permanent township was chosen and businesses in the area were moved in.
