Small Town Living, Big City Amenities

Buchanan is the quintessential small town that is located close to the city of South Bend and just 90 minutes from downtown Chicago. 

You CAN have it all -- beaches, fine dining, outdoor adventures, excellent health care, award-winning school systems and world-class cultural experiences.

Buchanan's 19th century buildings lining the downtown streets are full of character. They have been embraced by owners who have lovingly undertaken significant historical rehabilitation projects that respect the spirit of the buildings while upgrading to new modern mechanical systems and utilities. Appropriate in-fill new construction is encouraged.

You will also find smaller spaces for lease in repurposed buildings that once housed the Clark Equipment Company. And, if you need industrial space, there is an Industrial Park that is home to local businesses and global enterprises.
