Accessibility

Wheatland welcomes special needs visitors. LancasterHistory.org has an ADA ramp with ADA public restrooms.The pedestrian paths leading to the President's home are brick and do include a set of stairs leading to the house. At the house's back porch there is a ramp to provide access to the porch and a ramp at the entrance door threshhold into the mansion from the porch. A photographic tour of the first and second floor is available for our visitors unable to use the stairs in the Ware Visitor Commons. Wheelchairs are welcome in the mansion; however, the size of the interior spaces prevents the use of motorized scooter chairs, and limits the number that can be accommodated in a single tour. Printed mansion scripts are available for those with hearing problems. Licensed service dogs are welcome in Wheatland and in the Stauffer Wing (main building).
