Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Hillsboro, West Virginia

While the Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Museum was closed due to covoid I wanted to see the home where a woman who was a best selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner spent her formative years.

What a beautiful and serene spot to grow up in. This was a woman who was an advocate her entire life for civil and equal rights. As I visited the empty estate grounds I thought of her on the porch and in the barn as a young girl curious of what life had to offer.

“The secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.” -Pearl S. Buck

How true.
