WELCOME to Buchanan Memorial Hall. The Hall has been an active part of the local community and Buchanan Parish since 1925 and has been proud to provide residents and families support for social events.
Originally built as a war memorial for WWI soldiers from the local area, events of all types take place at the Hall – ceilidhs, parties and weddings, and the Hall serves as a meeting place for local clubs and organizations.
