 Brief History:

Buchanan County is located in the U.S. state of Missouri.  Its county seat is St. Joseph. When originally formed in 1838,
 the county was named Roberts County, after settler Hiram Roberts. It was renamed in 1839 for James Buchanan, then a
 U.S. Senator and later President of the United States. The county was formed from land annexed to Missouri, as were five
 other counties. Buchanan County is included in the St. Joseph, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area.
