Wheatland - A few miles west of Pomme de Terre Lake.
At one time, Wheatland was a thriving town and her well water was known to be the purest in the country. Today, the citizens of Wheatland are working diligently to bring their century old town to life again. Volunteers from the area have reassembled 13 authentic log buildings to create a Pioneer Village. Pioneer Village stands as a representative to the past. A replica relay station of the Butterfield Overland Mail is part of the village. Plan now to attend the Wheatland Harvest Festival, an annual celebration of community spirit. Or visit Pioneer Village during the Annual Christmas Lighting ceremony.
