The name of this unique Museum was inspired by the huge number of butterflies that flew in nearby fields. Built in 1914 in Greer, the Butterfly Lodge Museum was originally the home of James Willard Schultz and his son, Hart Merriam Schultz, who was also knows as Lone Wolf. James Willard Schultz was an explorer, a hunter, and archaeologist. He was also a popular author. In his youth, he married a Blackfoot American Indian named Natahki, and settled in the mountains where the beautiful Butterfly Lodge Museum stands. It was the year 1879, many years before the cabin that is now a Museum was built.
In the small Museum, you will find the original furnishings of the cabin and a small library that keeps most of the works of both James and his son, Hart. People come to visit the place, not just to read the books written by James and the paintings and sculptures made by Hart, but most especially, to enjoy the butterflies flying freely in the lush meadow.
