    Buchanan Township Reviews

    3 reviews
    The people are lovely, and can keep a good conversation. If you need help there will be someone there to always help. From funerals to houses accidentally getting burnt, the community is helpful and supportive.
    Review Buchanan Township
    There are instances of things being stolen, but the crime in general is not bad.
    Our local laws are very strict. Our police department is great and always doing their jobs the best they can.
