The Buchanan Village Cemetery dates to 1899 when European immigrants began to settle in the area. The village was named after Robert and Elizabeth Buchanan who had been farming in the area since the late 1880s. The names found on burial list from the Buchanan Village Cemetery reflect the many European cultures that came together in this part of Saskatchewan, all seeking a freer and more prosperous life, especially the Scandinavian and Doukobour immigrants arriving around the turn of the century and the Polish and Ukrainian immigrants a few years later. Various groups would eventually establish their own faith-based cemeteries, but Buchanan Village Cemetery was the oldest and served the entire community. Today, it is an active cemetery and continues to be maintained by the local municipal government. Other cemeteries associated with the village of Buchanan are St Anne's Roman Catholic Cemetery, Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery and the smaller St John's Ukrainian Orthodox Cemetery. Several other Doukobour, Lutheran, Ukrainian and Polish cemeteries are located in the countryside around the village, making this a very rich area for taphophiles and family historians.
