Events: Wheatland Living History Tours

The Buchanan Sisters

On this special living history tour of Wheatland, explore how James Buchanan’s nieces, Annie, Harriet, and Henrietta Buchanan, forged new life paths that ran counter to the traditional expectations for 19th-century women. During the tour, visitors will “time travel” to 1868 and 1906 to eavesdrop on the Buchanan sisters as they chat about beaus, fashion, and their life goals.

The Buchanan Sisters, a special living history tour of Wheatland, will be held on Saturday, September 7. Tours will be available on the hour, beginning at 10am and continuing until the last tour at 3pm. Please Note: These tours are not our regular General Admission tours and will not be Buchanan-focused. Living History Tours are an immersive and interactive experience that can incorporate historical tools, activities, and dress to give observers or participants a sense of stepping back in time. 

Tickets are available for purchase online or over the phone by calling (717) 392-4633. Advance reservations are highly recommended as tours may sell out and walk-in tickets may not be available. Members receive complimentary admission, but must reserve their tickets in advance.
