Preserve the Legacy

Become a Conservation Partner

Renowned author Pearl S. Buck spent her life working to build bridges between different cultures, countries and peoples. Today, her home is one of only 10 national historic landmark sites commemorating a woman’s cultural contributions through an intact collection of both historically significant and personal artifacts.

The precious objects in the museum collection need careful attention, controlled humidity—and sometimes, repairs.

We invite you to become part of Pearl S. Buck’s legacy with a gift that makes history. Without your help, preservation of our artifacts and continuation of Pearl S. Buck’s legacy would not be possible.

You are investing in the cultural life of your community, which not only benefits you, but also the future—our children and schools.

We hope you will visit us, tour the Pearl S. Buck House, browse the award-winning gardens and visit our gallery exhibit and gift shop.

Thousands of visitors have been truly inspired by Pearl Buck’s life and legacy – and we believe you will be, too.
