A glorious setting, a wonderful house filled with Pearl Buck’s family memorabilia. Tour guide was so knowledgeable, so accommodating, so filled with interesting history about the house, Pearl Buck and the family. Rooms are set up to give the sense that they are still in use, that the family just stepped out. Very enjoyable.
