YOU can make a difference. Buchanan encourages you to introduce your children to shopping small by shopping at locally owned businesses every day of the year.  With more than 25 locally owned mom & pop establishments, Buchanan has more reasons to shop local. Each shop, restaurant and service business offers quality goods and services with that hometown charm you expect to find in  small town America. The more you support them, the stronger they become and as a result, the more they can offer you and give back to our community. 

You may be surprised to discover how many items and services are being offered everyday in our hometown. From hardware, RV’s and hunting supplies to primitives, home furnishings & décor, antiques, art, collectibles, hair care, produce, meat, vehicle repair, prescriptions, movies and live entertainment. Buchanan has a little bit of just about everything. Oh, and don’t forget the hand dipped ice cream, full sit down meals as well as carryout and even local home delivery from our locally owned restaurants. We invite you to show your LOVE for small town America. Shop Local, Dine Local, Live and Play Local.

Where Main Street meets the mountains.  Nestled within the steep slopes of the Blue Ridge and Alleghany Mountains rests the Town of Buchanan, Virginia. An important Stopping point for travelers since the 1700’s, we invite you and your family to discover why Buchanan captures the hearts of so many.

Whether you are planning an afternoon shopping spree, or a weekend get away, include Buchanan as part of your itinerary.  Surround yourself in the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains while you explore more than two hundred years of history.

Travel & Leisure Magazine has just designated the Upper James River Trail as one of the best, easy outdoor adventures in the world. Check out their mention of Buchanan, VA!

In addition to shopping, Buchanan invites you to paddle  and fish the James River, hike the Appalachian Trail or peddle the U.S. Bicentennial Bicycle Route as it winds its way through town.

With so many things to see and do, we believe you will enjoy finding yourself immersed in natural beauty and history.
