"... preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future"  

                                      William Murtagh



The Buchanan Preservation Society works to protect and preserve residential, commercial, and industrial neighborhoods and their environments, including specific buildings and structures, while maintaining historic and genealogical records, objects and archives. Join us in using Buchanan's past to help shape its future.

The Buchanan Preservation Society is a 501c3 non-profit volunteer organization.  Join us in making a difference!

Historic preservation gives us roots, enhances community pride, teaches and inspires, makes our communities more attractive, encourages travel and tourism, stimulates downtown revitalization and economic development , while sustaining the environment.
