It first became an independent township on 26 April 1619[citation needed] when Giovanni Carron received the fiefs of Buttigliera, Uriola, and Case Nicola - as well as the title of Count - from Duke Charles Emmanuel I of Savoy.

From that point in time the history of Buttigliera was intimately tied with the history of the Carron family. The last member of the family, Clementina Carron, died in April 1912.

In the 20th century, the FIAT group established one of its metallurgical factories in Ferriera, a frazione of Buttigliera Alta.
