Pearl S. Buck: Life & Legacy
~ Traditional Historic House Tour ~
Pearl S. Buck was a Pulitzer and Nobel Award-winning author, a humanitarian, and an activist. This traditional biographic tour of her home, the Pearl S. Buck House, a National Historic Landmark, allows visitors to learn about the life and legacy of this remarkable woman.
A rich, mostly intact collection makes guests feel as if they are visiting the house in the time Ms. Buck and her family lived there. Objects from the ordinary (a closet full of board games played by the family) to the extraordinary (the typewriter Ms. Buck used to write The Good Earth) add to the fascinating experience. Other interesting items include rare artwork from around the world, period furnishings, personal clothing, and a library stocked with hundreds of books (including those by her favorite author, Charles Dickens).
If you love history, architecture, literature, folk art, fine art, or just stepping back in time, this tour is for you.
After the tour we’ll go to Doylestown (a 15 minute drive) for lunch and time on your own before heading back.
