The town of Buchanan is truly wonderful. I have lived here all of my life and have never had anything bad to say. The people are great, the economy is great, and there is just so much to do. The town of Buchanan is surrounded by plenty of other outstanding communities, such as the city of Appleton, Kaukauna, Menasha, and Little Chute. Each town/city comes together and makes the Fox Valley a greater overall community.

I'm from green bay and when I moved here I hatted it but now that I've lived here for so long I've grown to love it. I wouldn't chose another place to live. I love the small town and all the people I've met are very warmhearted. The only thing is there aren't many good jobs for high school students that wanna move on in a great career. They don't have much where we can get experience, Other than fast food places.
Most of the people here where born and raised here long lines of family everyone knows everyone around here if there is someone new you know about it. Everyone is very welcoming and seems like they want everyone involve.
