Explore homes of Pearl S. Buck, Oscar Hammerstein II on double-feature tour


The Pearl S. Buck House National Historic Landmark museum in Hilltown and the Oscar Hammerstein Museum in Doylestown are partnering to bring a special one-day double feature tour on Sept. 16 of the historic homes and lives and legacies of two of Bucks County’s most iconic artists and humanitarians – Pearl S. Buck and Oscar Hammerstein II.

Guests will have the option of beginning at either the Pearl S. Buck House or the Oscar Hammerstein House in the morning with a visit to the other in the afternoon.

Pearl S. Buck was a Pulitzer and Nobel Award-winning author, a humanitarian, and an activist. On our Life & Legacy Tour, a traditional biographic tour of her home, now a National Historic Landmark museum, visitors will learn about the life and legacy of Buck.

The tour at Highland Farm, Oscar Hammerstein’s home and creative epicenter, includes stories about Hammerstein’s musical family, how his groundbreaking musicals forever changed modern day book-musical, and additional insight into his contributions to society through his many humanitarian acts, such as Pearl S. Buck’s Welcome House.

Tickets are $30 and nonrefundable. In addition to tours of both museums, visitors will receive coupons to both the Pearl S. Buck International Gift Shop and Chambers 19 Bar & Bistro.
