On Presidents’ Day, February 19, join us at Wheatland for a special-subject tour exploring the year 1859, when President James Buchanan sealed his fate as a one-term executive. Learn about Buchanan’s attempts to expand the nation, his struggle with corruption in the War Department, and more in this special Presidents’ Day tour.

James Buchanan: The One-Term Executive, a special guided tour of Wheatland, will be held on Monday, February 19. 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 be more focused on a particular topic than a general history of Buchanan and the home.
