Tours of Wheatland are available on the hour, Monday to Saturday, starting at 10. The last tour of the day is at 3pm.


Since 2009, a series of strategic mergers has brought together the best assets of five distinct history institutions: Lancaster County’s Historical Society, President James Buchanan’s Wheatland, the Thaddeus Stevens & Lydia Hamilton-Smith Historic Site (to be fully developed in 2020), and the collections of the Heritage Center Museum and Lancaster Quilt and Textile Museum. Together, these historic resources form LancasterHistory.org, a comprehensive history center committed to the exploration of the Lancaster region’s contributions to local, state, and national history.
