Here are a couple more. The bath was installed by Harriet after Buchanan’s death. The piano is Harriet’s his niece.
I visited James Buchanan’s Presidential home today in Lancaster, PA. I thought the group would like to see the pictures. Although Buchanan takes a real beating from modern historians his estate is quite interesting. He originally purchased the farm house for 6,700 and that equated to 300,000 in today’s money. It is built in Federal style and the front of the House resembles a Southern plantation. The back doors resemble a Northern mansion and the direction each guest entered was determined by their Northern or Southern origins/leanings.
