    Buckner Reviews

    3 reviews
    Buckner is a small close knit family town that welcomes anyone and everyone with open arms. When someone is in need everyone pitches in to help no matter how big or small the job is. My family and I are very happy we made the choice to reside in Buckner!

    This small town in Missouri really feels like a place I could live and raise my own family some day. Everybody is friends with their neighbors and we all do things together. Main street is improving, we just got a new police station and a new Italian restaurant just opened up and it's delicious. I've lived her since I was little and I'll definitely miss it when I leave for college.

    When you drive through Buckner, you always see police cars going around. In fact, at least two police officers live in my neighborhood. I think it's very reassuring to see police cars constantly and they're doing well with the new station on main street.
