Being a national landmark brings some unique aspects. We know you and your guests will enjoy our beautiful historical site, and only ask that you do so with respect.

1. Geocaching at Buchanan

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a GPS or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world.

We have hidden a new (June 2019) cache stash of our own. It is easily within reach and sight but camouflaged, so you need keen eyes. Open the stash for instructions how to register your find, then return it as you found it. You do not need to move, stand on, look under, or dig anything to find this cache stash,

Finds to date: (2)


Coordinates: xxx

Clues: xxx

Rules: Return the stash as you found it. Keep the location your secret so others can have the same fun you did.

2. Metal Detecting on Buchanan

With such a long history and a property that once spanned over a thousand acres, it is tempting to want to metal detect on grounds with so much activity and potential Civil War artifacts.


We are working on the idea of making metal detecting possible on our grounds for small groups. But there are many considerations around boundaries, approved areas, detecting guidelines, ownership, and permissions to get in place first. Currently, metal detecting is not allowed.

Please contact us, we welcome all inquires.
