Local History
okt. 2021 • Gezinnen
Living just over an hour away, took my 9-yr old grandson to learn a little history and how a local person impacted on a national level. Buchanan’s preparedness paired with his underperformance provided a big lesson in our nation’s history…part timing, part the man.
The movie just before the house tour provides some background on the timing in history and the man/his family. While the house was the site of 2 speeches and a Convention headquarters, most of the activities at the home were pre & post presidency.
The home retains many items from Buchanan and family members to the period. Our guide, Bob, was knowledgeable about the home and many visitors that came to the home. House tours are guided only; tours of the ground are self-guided.
In addition to the home, the center where you get your tickets and view the pre-show, also houses an exhibit-currently on Lancaster in the 60s. There is a small gift shop as well. Plenty of free parking.
Buchanan is buried at a nearby cemetery. You can get directions to the cemetery and his grave location at the center.

Learn about a president
sep. 2021 • Stellen
Did not know much about president Buchanan before visiting here. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about all things Buchanan. Many items in this spacious home are original with pictures from when he occupied the house. The museum on the grounds has more history and lots of good information. The actual property is peaceful and serene. Ample free parking.

Disappointing video, but great estate tour!
sep. 2021
I wish I could leave two separate reviews, one for the short movie (which would be rated a 1) and the tour (which would be rated a 5). The most disappointing thing about the movie was that it spent a long time speculating about why President Buchanan was a bachelor and questioning his private life, but finally admitting that there is no evidence that he was anything but just a bachelor after we had just wasted 5 minutes that could have been better used to describe the difficult times he faced and his presidential decisions. However the tour was very interesting with a tour guide in period dress. We learned about how President Buchanan helped raise his niece and nephew, and how he enjoyed and mastered the art of hosting parties. The house and property are well preserved and beautiful. Check out the massively deep tub that was added later and the original grand piano, purchased brand new for the Buchanan mansion.

Thank you for taking the time to review LancasterHistory. We appreciate your comments to both the film and the estate. The house is well preserved with several of his belongings, as well as Harriet Lane's.

You MUST go on this Tour!
aug. 2021
The tour was just awesome! Tim was our guide and was so informative. We learned so much about James Buchanan, his career, and his family! We were divided into very small groups so that we could see and hear everything. We were also able to ask questions. The mansion is filled with articles from his presidency and his life. A great tour!!

Federal style at its grandest
aug. 2021
This Federal style mansion just over a mile west of Lancaster was built in the early 1800's and was occupied by President Buchanan before and after his presidency. Knowledgeable tour guides dressed in the style of the 1800's take you through this spacious home complete with original furniture and refurbished with floor coverings and wallpaper as close as possible from the originals taken from drawings from the 1800's.

Nice tour
aug. 2021
As a local to the area, we wanted to learn more about the history of Lancaster. We didn't know about James Buchanan and his presidency! A great tour guided by period dressed guide. A short video gives some background and then the tour of his home. The property surrounding the home has a few things to see. The museum in the information center was informative.
Having spent some time this summer touring the Civil War Museum in Harrisburg and then Gettysburg, this tour rounded out the history of the time period.

Interesting to see
jul. 2021
If you are in the area, this is an interesting site to see. The museum entry is very nice, clean, well maintained.
The tour of the house was very informative and we had a very knowledgeable guide (Jerry). If you are at all interested in history and presidents, you can't go wrong here. Enjoy

A Nice Local Tour
jul. 2021
Since I'm local I figured it would be nice to learn about President James Buchanan and his estate Wheatland. The tour starts with a video telling a little about his life. I found it interesting but slanted negatively. My takeaway from the video was President Buchanan wasn't much of a President or leader. Since I'm not a historian, I assume it is true? I did find the tour itself interesting and enjoyable. I learned more about the past than I have known before along with certain items that were used back then that I had never seen before on any tour I've been on.
A Helpful Key: When you purchase your tickets be sure to take a map of the grounds (they are on the same desk as the tickets in the center) because on that map they have all the trees labeled and you'll want to know what they are when you start walking the grounds.
They also have a nice gift store and other historical information in the halls where you purchase your tickets.

Visit James Buchanan's House
jul. 2021
I came across this on brochures, Bought tickets and was on my way. I enjoyed seeing the house of a president I did not know. The house was so interesting, the items collected are great peices, the grounds inside and out are cool to visit. Our tour guide was adorable very smart and knew a lot. It a way to learn a bit more history. A way to spend some time out of the sun and learn of one our our president. He must not have done much because he is not talked about so much.
thanks to our elderly guide. He is good.
