It's a small, quiet town. Very peaceful. The people here are friendly and helpful whenever they can.
Review Buchanan
It is a quiet little town. Low crime rate and very involved community. Not much local to do, but close to bigger towns with more to do.
Not much crime at all. This isn't a place I ever feel unsafe in. There are kids doing a bit of vandalism, but it isn't bad in the long run for everything.
