Pearl S Buck was an amazing writer and woman. It is so inspiring to be able to tour her Bucks County, PA home with her things still on view. They have wonderful docents there to lead guided tours and revel the visitor with heartwarming stories. The house itself is worth the tour, it being a very old but well maintained stone farmhouse. There is a wonderful gift shop with gifts from a round the world as well as local artisans. The items are extremely varied and very reasonable.
The grounds and gardens are beautiful. But the most beautiful place is the area in which she is buried. It is off by itself on the left soon after you turn into the long driveway. You park your car on a small pull-off on the right.The path to her grave is lined by flowers and plants. It is truly a reverent site- a place to sit and contemplate. There are also markers for others buried nearby and a note about their importance to her.
There is a reasonable donation? for the tour.
If you don't also know, Pearl S. Buck started Welcome House for the adoption of Amer-Asian children. This organization is still going strong and was very dear to her.
