The CBSI was formed in 1970 as the Clan Buchanan Society in America.  It was founded at the Grandfather Mountain Games in North Carolina.  The name was later changed to the Clan Buchanan Society International Inc., to reflect our society's expanded purpose and membership. 

The society is currently divided into sixteen US and international regions with many members active throughout the United States and around the world.  The wonderful thing about the CBSI is that any person who is of Buchanan descent or one of the Septs (associated family names) can join and celebrate their Scottish heritage with many links to Buchanan activities, genealogist, etc.  We also accept people who know they are of Scottish descent, but are not sure what their clan or history might be!

Jack Kehoe Hibernian House (AOH)

Joseph John Wayne owns the building, which serves as a bar and hotel. It's also the house formerly owned by Jack Kehoe, the alleged king of a secret organization of coal miners known as the Molly McGuires. The Molly Maguires were accused of being a group of renegade Irish coal miners who terrorized coal companies, railroads and their officials while hiding behind the ranks of the Irish fraternal organization, the Ancient Order of Hibernians. Year later Joe Wayne, Kehoe’s great-grandson won the fight to have his great-grandfather’s name cleared and Black Jack was pardoned by Pennsylvania Governor Milton Shapp who called the Molly Maguire trial a “miscarriage of justice.”
