Welcome to the Buchanan Towers community, home to Buchanan Towers and Buchanan Towers East.

Buchanan Towers and Buchanan Towers East are just minutes away from the Fairhaven dining commons, the Wade King Recreation Center, Arboretum, and the Outback farm. Tennis courts and playing fields are also located just across the street.
