Facility:Pearl S. Buck Birthplace
Description:Located in the beautiful and historic "Little Levels" of Pocahontas County, at Hillsboro, West Virginia, is the restored Birthplace of Pearl S. Buck, the most distinguished descendant of two outstanding families--the Stulting and Sydenstricker families. This house was built by the Stulting family who emigrated from Holland to America in 1847 and who lived here on a sixteen acre farm. On June 26, 1892, the birth of Pearl Comfort Sydenstricker took place here. Today the Birthplace is a fine historic house museum of 1892 where guides greet you and lead you through period rooms containing some of the original furniture and memorabilia of Pearl S. Buck, as well as West Virginia crafts, our official First Day Covers with Pearl Buck Stamps, and other souvenirs.

I have fond memories of the Pearl S. Buck house. It is a small place but is full of history. My father took me to this site on a regular basis when I was young and it ignited a love of history in me from an early age. I truely loved the small window balcony off of one of the rooms. I hope to travel back to visit family in the near future so that I may let my son share in one of my best childhood experiences.
