Built between 1880-1890, Buckingham House was home to John and Amelia Buckingham and their seven children. As graziers, their home was well situated close to Lake Joondalup to access water for their cattle and vegetable gardens. John Buckingham was an active member of the Wanneroo community and donated five acres of land and £5 to the Education Department in 1898 for a school to be built in the area. Years later, Buckingham House was resided by other prominent Wanneroo families including the Ashby family and, George Tapping.

In the 1940s, Italian migrant family the Tognos took over the property and established a successful dairy and maize crop. The Neville family continued the dairy business in the 1950s and 1960s before it was sold for the establishment of a Wanneroo housing subdivision. The City of Wanneroo acquired the home in the 1970s. Following careful restoration, it was officially opened as a heritage homestead for the community to enjoy and to learn about the Wanneroo of old.
