I loved this house, I had heard that President Buchanan said that he hoped his successor (Abraham Lincoln) would be as happy in the White House as he would be to get back to Wheatland and I can totally understand this.

My husband and I were on the first tour of the day and were the only ones, so it was more of a personal tour. The house is beautiful inside and has a lot of the original furnishings that belonged... 更多
