Buttsville is an unincorporated community in Grundy County, Missouri, United States.

History

The origin of the name Buttsville is uncertain; the State Historical Society of Missouri speculates the community was named from the surname Butts. A post office was established as Buttsville in 1855, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1902. When the railroad was built through Grundy County but bypassed Buttsville, the community declined in importance.
