Pearl S. Buck's house is on Dublin Road in Perkasie, Pennsylvania. The Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winning author purchsed this property, known as Green Hills Farm, in 1933, and maintained it as a residence until her death in 1973. She had spent over thirty years of her life in China when she finally left for good in 1934. Her writing career had only recently begun in the ealy thirties, and with the success of The Good Earth, which became a best seller and earned her the Pulitzer Prize in 1932, she was on her way to a long and successful literary career. Shortly after her initial fame she purchased this 1820's farm house and complex, and while living off and on elsewhere during this time, she would own this estate for the rest of her life. She won the Nobel prize in literature in 1938, while living here, and would go on to produce over thirty works during the next forty years. In the late 60's she moved to a home in Danby, Vermont, where she would eventually die of lung cancer. That home later served as the headquarters of the Mt. Tabor-Danby Historical Society, and was later destroyed in a flood during Hurricane Irene in August, 2011. As for Green Hills, it was placed on The National Register of Historic Places and declared a National Historic Landmark. The Pearl S. Buck foundation currently operates from this location and runs the farm as a museum. The author is buried on the grounds of the estate.
