Buena Vista

The main section of Buena Vista was built between 1845 and 1847 by John M. Clayton, United States Secretary of State from 1849–1850 under presidents Taylor and Fillmore, and United States Senator from 1829–1836, 1845–1849, and 1853 until his death in 1856. The home later became the residence of C. Douglass Buck, Governor of Delaware from 1929–1937 and United States Senator from 1942–1948. Administered by the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, Buena Vista and its grounds now serve as a state conference center offering a variety of meeting rooms, modern communication capabilities, quality food services, and a host of guest amenities.
