The Maridon Museum
The Maridon opened on May 8th, 2004. It is the only museum in the Western Pennsylvania region with a specific focus on Asian Art and Culture coupled with German Meissen porcelain. The museum — both the objects and the buildings that house them — is the gift of Mary Hulton Phillips. Patricia Lowry, writing in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, pronounced the Maridon a “gleaming little gem of a museum.”

Succop Nature Park
Open from dawn to dusk, with dog-friendly walking trails, two ponds, and natural spaces used for outdoor activities and education, Succop Nature Park has a longstanding history in the Butler community. While still owned by the Succop family, the public was invited to use the property for picnics—and even to collect fresh eggs from the onsite hens. Today, the property is managed by ASWP and its serene environment attracts visitors of all ages who seek to connect with birds and nature.

In 2009, Joe, Tim, and Pete founded Freedom Farms and reunited the family. Now, all of the siblings—nine brothers and one sister—work alongside “Mama Bear” Lisa to run a growing family business. We believe that the family farm is on its way to regaining its pivotal role in American culture. The times where people went down the street to buy food directly from a local farmer are on their way back. Our family has committed itself to being that source for fresh food in Butler, Pa. and to inspiring farmers everywhere to rethink the way they serve their communities.
