we found this only by Chance, as it was not mentioned in any guide book we had. So we were too late for a tour, which we would have like so much to do as Pearl S. Buck books accompanied our youth and we read them all. But we got the chance to walk the grounds by ourself and that... More

Went to an outdoor wedding here this past weekend. It was such a lovely place and truly leant to a beautiful day (perfect weather helped). Gorgeous place to host an event.

Pearl Bucks Bucks County stone manor home and it's surrounding estate grounds is a worthwhile trip to take while Viking or staying in New Hope, Pa. The only female to win both the Nobel AND the Pulitzer Prize.

We are glad you liked your visit to the Pearl S. Buck House and are happy you share our enthusiasm for what a wonderful writer she was. We just wanted to clarify that Miss Buck was the first American woman to receive both the Pulitzer and Nobel prizes. Toni Morrison also holds that distinction as the second. More

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.
