A National Historic Landmark Museum
The Pearl S. Buck House, a National Historic Landmark museum in Bucks County, PA, was the home of Pearl S. Buck and her family. The beautiful and iconic Bucks County stone farmhouse contains a rich, intact collection from the extraordinary (the typewriter on which she wrote The Good Earth) to the ordinary (a closet full of board games her family played).
The Pearl S. Buck House, known as Green Hills Farm, offers a variety of educational programs for k-12 students. The museum is one of a few National Historic Landmarks committed to preserving the legacy of a woman with an intact personal collection.
