Buna, Texas is a great place to grow up in. Everyone is friendly, genuine, and caring. It is such a small town that everyone knows everyone's names, and everyone wears blue, the school color. The whole town rallies behind their athletes, and it feels like everyone is at every school affiliated event. If you ever need help, with anything, just ask the first person you see and they'd be willing to help you with a big smile and a happy heart. Growing up in Buna, Texas has helped me grow into the young man I am today. I have learned countless life lessons from my school, my church, my family, and my community.
It is a small town with a big heart. The people that live here are kind, friendly welcoming and make wonderful neighbors. You have to drive a little to see a move or go to a big box store, but in exchange you get to avoid the headaches and frustrations of big city life. If you are looking for a slower way of life, complete with antique shops, hometown restaurants, family owned businesses and a very fun “Red Bud Festival” the cities annual event that celebrates Spring with, among other things; a pagant, a rodeo, a carnival, and a parade. Then Buna is exactly what you have been looking for.
