The school, named after Benjamin F. Butler, a longtime Lowell resident, Massachusetts Governor, and Civil War general, was built in 1882 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995. Vacant since 1994, the building deteriorated.[1] In May 2013, demolition began on the vacant building, and two new business buildings will be constructed on the lot.[2]

A new Butler School facility[3] was built further up Gorham Street in 1992.
