A 30 minute drive north from Roanoke, VA will take you to Buchanan. Located near Interstate Highway 81, this lovely, picturesque town is replete with historical buildings and an old-world charm. The Civil War Trails indicated by markers throughout the town will take you through one of the more tragic eras in the nation's history while the well-loved 1914 Buchanan Theatre that is still in use today livens up the evenings. Main Street is lined with shops, restaurants and inns. Enjoy a local event, festival or show in downtown, and take home an antique souvenir.
