Occupations and Workforce

While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Buchanan Dam is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Buchanan Dam has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Buchanan Dam has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Buchanan Dam than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Buchanan Dam may be for you.

Buchanan Dam is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
