Richard Butler, a hardworking businessman from New York travelled to what was known as West Bloomingdale and bought into an existing rubber factory. In 1879, he became the president of the Rubber Comb and Jewelry Company (later named the Butler Hard Rubber Company). In 1881, a post office was built and named "Butler" to honor Richard Butler, whose improvements to the Rubber Mill caused the extensive growth of the town. Shortly after, the existing railroad stop has its name changed to the Butler Railroad Station. The expanding hard rubber factory drew in hundreds of workers, and many of them decided to live and build in this one-time vacation spot. Roads were laid out, homes, stores, a hotel and a public hall were built and land was donated by Richard Butler for the Butler Methodist Church, Saint Anthony's Church and to the Board of Education. Legislature took notice of the expansion and separated it from Pequannock by making it a Borough on March 13, 1901.

Butler was one of the first communities in the area to develop their own coat of arms. Every part of the coat of arms in some way represents a part of this town's history. The royal blue and gold are the same colors that represent the high school and the State of New Jersey. The heart-shaped shield with the straight top is the kind awarded in 1628 to Sir Thomas Butler, a baronet of County Carlow, Ireland. It has a gold chief on a blue field surrounded by an ermine border. The helmet is that of a contemporary baronet. The broken hunting arrows of the crest memorialize the Lenni Lenape Indians, whose villages and trails were located where Butler is today. The scroll contains the Latin phrase "Portas ad Lacus", which translates as "Gateway to the Lakes". The front supporter of the shield is a golden Statue of Liberty, commemorating Richard Butler's involvement with the committee for erecting the statue's pedestal and his friendship with Frederic Bartholdi. The other supporter is the blue-coated wooden fireman from a Newark salvage company. The mount everything stands on is composed of 3 layers. The bottom black layer represents the Pequannock River (Lenni Lenape for "black waters"). The middle layer is gold, representing the farmlands of wheat that were once in the area. The blue top layer signifies the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains. Underneath the coat is "Borough of Butler - March 13, 1901", the date of the town's incorporation.
