Buchanan's Birthplace State Park

After our trip to Cedar Creek and Belle Grove NHP, we began heading further north. We stopped for lunch at Five Guys and then headed through parts of West Virginia and Maryland and into Pennsylvania. We got off of I-81 and headed west through Mercersburg to the small town of Cove Gap and Buchanan's Birthplace State Park. I have a thing for visiting the birth sites of terrible presidents. Two years ago we visited the supposed birth home of Andrew Johnson in Raleigh, North Carolina. This year it was the birth site of our 15th president. It is marked by a small pyramid.

There's not much else to the site, though there is a small, pretty creek that winds through. I can now say that I've been to the birth site of the 15th, 16th and 17th presidents!
