History
Alexander Buchanan built this 16-room wood and brick mansion between 1883 and 1885. He was known for owning and operating a 560-acre farm near Mechanicsville. In 2009, Randy and Lynn Weaver saved the mansion and moved it to its new home. They spent years reviving it, so they could open it to the public as the Buchanan House Winery. Now, they produce red, white, sparkling and fruit wines at their vineyard.
