A small group of us visited Wheatland for their annual holiday season tour, which - after a short wait in their beautiful new visitors center - was enhanced by a fanciful drama . In just under an hour, we enjoyed a Night-Before-Christmas-themed play that including fun audience participation and wound through the house. This historic home has wonderful period furnishings and was lovingly decorated for Christmas. The performers were all volunteers, letting us know this area has heart and talent. I'm going back in the Spring for a regular guided tour to learn more about the home and grounds.

The house and grounds are beautiful. Right next door to the historical society. Homes in the area are also majestic.

The setting of this house is a beautiful area. The guide made the tour so interesting. The brand new visitors' center is really lovely and includes an informative movie about President Buchanan, as well as interesting artifacts of the area. A great way to spend a few hours in this area.

This is James Buchanan's house and while he was an obscure President the house and grounds are well worth visiting. The guide was excellent.
