The town had the biggest
textile factory in south-eastern Europe. But the factory has drastically reduced its capabilities after 1989 and currently employs less than 200 workers. The Runc Monastery (built in 1457), located near Buhuși, is one of the famous monasteries built by Stephen the Great of Moldavia in Moldavia during the Ottoman Wars in the 15th century.
Buhuși has five primary schools and one high school, the
Ion Borcea Technical College. The town administers two villages, Marginea and Runcu.
Rabbi Yitzchok Friedman, son of Rabbi
Yisrael Friedman of Ruzhyn, founded the Bohush Hasidic dynasty here in the mid-nineteenth century. The dynasty moved to Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1951.
