George and Lizzy Buchan brought their two children, George B.
and Elizabeth, to the United States in April 1902. George, a baker, had
decided to leave Scotland and relocate his family. He worked as a baker in
Lowell, MA, before heading west and finally settling in North Seattle in
1906. He found work in the not-so-nearby Buckley as a baker, commuting to
work by train and returning home on the weekends. Eventually, he saved
enough to start his own retail bakery in downtown Seattle around 1919. This
is just some of the history of Buchan Baking Company.
