Guided tours and special events held at the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author's circa 1825 farmhouse and intact collection on a picturesque 68-acre estate. As a member of the NAACP and the first to create an adoption agency for bi-racial children, Pearl Buck was a leader in the fight against descrimination. Alongside longtime friend Eleanor Roosevelt, she was also a leading women's rights advocate. Her home is now a National Historic Landmark with gift shop, cultural center, beautiful gardens and seasonal special exhibits.
