In the heart of downtown Buchanan is the Pears Mill. It was built in 1857 and is the last of thirteen mills that were built on the McCoy Creek. It was slated for demolition in 1983 after the co-op that used the building moved out. A group of citizens saved and restored the historic mill and it is open to visitors on Saturdays in the summer months. My thought was it seemed strange to build a mill next to downtown but, then I realized the mill was built before most of the town.
