Listing No. 5205

1852 Greek Revival
Hillsboro, WV



The Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Museum

Built in 1852, this attractive three-story house in the country town of Hillsboro, West Virginia was hand-constructed by a Dutch refugee family escaping religious persecution in Holland. The famous author Pearl S. Buck was born in the home in 1892 while her parents were on leave from missionary work in China. Today, you can take a guided tour to learn about Pearl Buck and her family or stroll through the surrounding fields. The carpentry shop and barn contain over 100 historic farm and woodworking tools, and the log home of Pearl's father's family, the Sydenstrickers, has been moved from Greenbrier County to the property in Hillsboro for a second museum and cultural center.
