Shopping Downtown Buchanan

Winner of Valley Conservation Council’s “Best Downtown Initiative Award” 

Winner of the Roanoke Times’ Botetourt View  “Best Place to Take Relatives from Out of Town” Award 

Celebrating two hundred years of history, the Town of Buchanan is capitalizing on its historic roots. Our Main Street shops invite you to shop, stroll and dine in Downtown Buchanan.

You and your family are invited to explore Buchanan where treasures from the past and present await your discovery.  Step back in time as you stroll along Buchanan’s historic Main Street. Discover a treasure trove of “mom and pop” shops offering a wealth of goods as well as personal services for your everyday needs.

Main Street’s quaint atmosphere encourages a leisurely pace. Enjoy brightly colored geraniums cascading from baskets while petunias and impatiens fill planters welcoming shoppers to Main Street. Copper storefronts, gleaming hardwood floors and soaring ceilings dressed in ornate pressed metal tiles delight shoppers and stand as a testimony to earlier days.

Merchants fill their shops and galleries with anything you can imagine. A sampling of downtowns businesses include antiques,  art, collectibles, fresh cut flowers, produce and plants for your garden and flower beds, canoeing & river supplies, indoor black-light golf, and, so much more.

Locally owned restaurants offer Burgers & Fries, Mexican Fare, Homemade German Specialties, Pizza and pasta, as well as Good Old-Fashioned Southern Cooking. Check them out, they are waiting to serve you.

While you are here, why not stay the night and spend the evening at one of our Inns housed within an executive rail car, or, a historic Victorian Home.

We look forward to meeting you and showing you what small town America is all about.
