The Pearl S. Buck: Life and Legacy tour takes on a special ambiance when this traditional tour is done in the evening.  The charm of the wreath on the front door combined with the twinkle of holiday trees throughout the house make visitors feel as though they are personal guests of Pearl S. Buck in her National Historic Landmark Home. One can easily imagine Ms. Buck reading her beloved Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to children sitting around the fireplace with hot cocoa.  This unique tour promises to add cheer to the holiday season.
