Join us as we transport you back to September 1866 at the Wheatland Farm of James Buchanan. Desperate for good domestic help, Mr. Buchanan has hired Thomas & Rosanna Gordon, a couple who had resigned from their posts only a few months earlier. Rosanna is the best cook Wheatland has ever had; Thomas, however, is as Mr. Buchanan describes, "anything but agreeable!" When you visit, you will have a unique opportunity to eavesdrop on the arguments and drama that took place at Wheatland in 1866.

The Living History at Wheatland program Anything but Agreeable takes place with tours on the hour starting at 12:00pm with the last starting at 3:00pm. A standard tour of Wheatland is also offered at 10:00am & 11:00am. We strongly advise making reservations in advance for your tour since tours do fill up and walk-in space is not guaranteed. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your tour so you may use the facilities and check in.
