Historic House Tours
Welcome House Adoption Program
Tours of the national historic landmark home of Pearl S. Buck complement in-classroom learning in reading, history, art, science and even math. Just a short drive from Philadelphia, the Bucks County farmhouse home showcases art, history, and the influence China had on the Pulitzer-Prize, Nobel Prize – winning author’s life.
On the docent-led tour, students will observe Pearl S. Buck's blending of eastern and western cultures, and develop a fundamental understanding of the role humanitarianism plays in today's society, the importance of appreciating cultural diversity, and how one person can apply their skills to contribute to society and their community as they are introduced to a unique historic house museum with an intact collection that reflects the dynamic life of Pearl S. Buck, her family and the local and global communities Pearl S. Buck International has served during and after her lifetime.The historic site is open seven days a week and offers a year round calendar of events, exhibits, writing workshops and special programs. Teachers and homeschool parents can tap into our educational resources to enhance classroom and homeschool curriculum. If you want to jump start the children’s learning experience, schedule a Speakers Bureau presentation in advance of your visit.Tours meet PA and Common Core academic standards in Language Arts, History, Geography, Art, and Science. Online resources prepare students for their visit and enable them to continue their learning back in the classroom.
