|Location of the municipality|
At 8.85 square kilometers, Buus is the third largest municipality in the Sissach district and is located on a valley floor into which several small valleys flow.
Archaeological finds show that the area around Buus was inhabited as early as the Bronze Age. It is believed that the village belonged to the Beromünster monastery in the Middle Ages , then passed to the Counts of Lenzburg , the Counts of Frohburg , the Counts of Habsburg-Laufenburg and finally to the Thiersteiners. In 1461 Buus was sold to Basel and was under the rule of the Basel bailiffs for 300 years.
The surname Buser is derived from the original name of the parish, Bus .
