The Pearl S. Buck House, a National Historic Landmark

The Pearl S. Buck House, a National Historic Landmark, is unique in that it is one of few sites, which in addition to being a house museum, is actively continuing the work of its founder.  While telling Pearl S. Buck’s extraordinary story and the history of her home, the house ultimately serves as a means to create a dialogue about relevant social issues.  A separate social justice tour has been added to the biographical tour and specifically invites visitors to investigate and participate in dialogue on these issues.
