This was a nice refresher on her life and legacy while enjoying the beautiful grounds and gardens. Given that it was late in the growing season the volunteers need to be commented for the beauty, variety and shape of the flowers gardens. I enjoyed visiting with the friendly staff at the visitors center and the brief video. This is a... More

I recently visited the Pearl S. Buck house. The tour was very informative about PSB. However, our tour guide kept interjecting information about her own adopted children and how successful they are and how she personally met with PSB and her adopted children, and how they attend the PSB House functions. I can only give a 3 stars, due to... More

Have visited the house and grounds several times with friends visiting from out of town and learn something new each time. Very well preserved and presented artifacts, with informative descriptions. Very helpful staff. Well maintained grounds. Go when the flowers are in bloom and allow a couple of hours.

Being in her house, walking on her grounds, seeing her gravesite on her property, listening to the docent telling of her accomplishments - all these things were magical! I read The Good Earth when I was a teen and again a few years ago - an amazing book by an amazing writer. Her good works, in addition to her writing,... More

It's nice to have a great piece of American history in our own backyard. The Pearl S. Buck house is wonderfully preserved in a romantic setting.

Set on a back road. One of a kind home to a one of a kind author. The area has many artisans homes, museums, and attractions. Michener lived locally before Texas. Hammerstein, Stieglitz, and Georgia O'Keefe lived here.

My local library has passes to certain museums. I had taken the Pearl S. Buck pass out in October; however, even after a call to the museum to confirm it would be open on Columbus Day, when we got there it was closed. My husband and I were disappointed, but had read they have an Annual Holiday Festival of Trees... More

Visited yesterday to take a look at the house decorated for Christmas. This was so much more than we expected! the house was beautiful, and the tour was very informative. We both learned so much about Pearl Buck and the organizations she created to carry out her humanitarian works, as well as her writing. Tour was over too quickly, and... More
