Situated in the Bucks County countryside on 68 acres, just a short drive from Philadelphia, the Pearl S. Buck House tells the story of how Pearl S. Buck advocated for cross-cultural understanding and promoted racial harmony. Pearl S. Buck House tours will inspire your groups all year round.
An author and humanitarian, Pearl S. Buck was a human bridge between East and West.
One of only a few national historic landmarks committed to preserving the legacy of a woman with an intact personal collection, the home showcases art, history, and the influence China had on her life. As you walk through her pre-1825 Pennsylvania stone farmhouse, you will learn her life history, which began in childhood as the daughter of missionary parents in China and ended as a Pulitzer and Nobel-prize winning author.
Visitors will see the Nobel and Pulitzer prizes on display; the desk where Ms. Buck penned her novel The Good Earth, gifts from luminaries like the Dali Lama and President Richard Nixon; photos of President John F. Kennedy and Eleanor Roosevelt; paintings from renowned artists, and so much more. After the tour, take a stroll through the award-winning gardens, walk the path down to her gravesite, and shop in the International Gift Shop.
The Pearl S. Buck House is 15 minutes from Doylestown, Bucks County, PA with some of the area’s best shopping and museums; 30 minutes from New Hope, PA, one of the most celebrated arts destinations on the East Coast; and a short drive from Philadelphia’s cultural and historic center. The Pearl S. Buck House is a "must-see destination" on any Mid-Atlantic tour itinerary.
