Festus Orestes Butt was born in 1875 in Illinois just before his family moved to Carroll County, Arkansas. He became a licensed attorney before he was of legal age. The Arkansas General Assembly set aside his "disability of minority", and he set up a practice in Eureka Springs in 1894. Elected to the legislature, Butt served four years, then two successive terms in the state senate before 1910. He was elected mayor of Eureka Springs in 1911, 1916 and 1920. During a second term in the Assembly, Butt enacted special legislation in 1913 that gave Eureka Springs perpetual first class city status, regardless of population. Beloved for his oratory, wisdom and service to community, F. O. Butt practiced his profession on these premises until his death in 1972.
