  • This was my first time going here. I went to see the exhibit about the phillipino children who were left by their American servicemen father's when the bases closed. Very moving. See it before it ends. I will be back again to explore the grounds and take the tour. Nice to see a cultural center close by.
  • Beautiful, interesting house still furnished with Pearl S. Buck's things. Extremely informative tour given by a well-informed dosent. Her grave and her Noble Peace prize and Puletzer prize, as well as original illustrations for some of her book covers are here. In my opinion this is one of the less-known treasures of the area. If you are local, check to see if you can get a free pass from your library. I got in for free, but would gladly pay the $15 admission fee. Well worth the cost.
  • Great tour- very interesting and grounds are gorgeous. We were very impressed with the house and gardens. Gift shop is reasonable and has a mix of items for sale.
  • Very nice restoration of the author"s home and farm. Tour, gift shop, small gardens. Learn about her philanthropic organization.
  • Loved it ,very inspiring to know about the life of one of the great humanitarians of our century,would go back again when friends visit so they can experience seeing her home as well and getting to know Pearl S Buck.
