Wheatland Estate

Wheatland Estate

Built in 1828, Buchanan purchased the property in 1848 from a Philadelphia attorney. Today, the property includes three outbuildings and some small gardens. Visitors can explore the grounds and learn about the life and times of Buchanan, the last antebellum president and one who sought to hold the Union together in an impossible time.
