Description:

James Buchanan, 15th president of the United States, purchased this large Federal style house and its 22 acres of land near Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1848. Period pieces now furnish the rooms on the first two floors.  Many of the items, especially those in the library, belonged to Buchanan.  Today, LancasterHistory.org retains 10 acres of the original 22 acre property, including the home and three outbuildings.
