Jackson Township in Butler County, Pennsylvania, is only 33 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh via I-79 South and I-279 South. Much like the other townships that surround it, Jackson Township was settled in the late 1790s and officially incorporated in 1854. Butler County is a part of the Pittsburgh North region and named for Major General Richard Butler, an officer in the Continental Army who fought in the Revolutionary War of 1775. Butler would later be killed in a battle with hostile Native American tribes in the St. Clair's Defeat. Thus it goes without saying that Jackson Township and the surrounding area hold a great historical significance in American history. The township was primarily composed of Irish and German immigrants who arrived in the area around the beginning of the 19th century. One of the most prominent of these people was a man named Dettmar Basse, founder of Zelienople. Basse was a wealthy aristocrat from Germany who had built a castle on the land that he turned into Zelienople. Another big name who lived in Jackson was the founder of Harmony in 1805, George Rapp.
