Buchanan Georgia town square

Fair on the Square - Fall 2007

Buchanan Georgia
Sesquicentennial

Travel back in time half a century to the year 1957 - through its dress, music, movies and other artifacts - when Buchanan celebrated the centennial of its founding and the Square was center to a busy community life. Bring your children and enjoy a safe, fun-filled family atmosphere set at an ornate restored Courthouse listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Sample a variety of craft and food specialities at the vendor arcade. Witness demonstrations of the traditional trade of coal-fire forging. Enjoy all-day showings of the vintage film Buchanan on Parade as well as mass-market radio, TV and movies from 1957 on the second floor of the Courthouse, where dining tables are made available. Look for surprises remembering local life 100 and 150 years ago, too. Enjoy the musical charm of the children's Cricket Chorus, and see the Haralson County High School marching band in the noon parade. Take part in a live remote by radio station WKNG and attend the dedication of the Sanford-Wade Heritage House.

Food provided at vendor booths and by the Friends of the Library, who will reprise their always-popular benefit barbecue!
