Regarding First Zion Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The Methodist Episcopal Church of Butler was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on November 24, 1997. The church is also on the New York State Register of Historic Places.
The church was used for regular services until 1968. After that, it was used for two services a year until the 1980's.

The annex is now home to the Butler Church Museum.
