Discover the REAL ghosts of the Pearl S. Buck House! The Pearl S. Buck Volunteer Association is hosting slightly spooky, family-friendly ghost tours on Sunday, October 28. Visitors will encounter some of the many ghosts seen on the property by Pearl S. Buck, her neighbors, and house visitors.
Through the years there have been many documented ghost sightings at the Pearl S. Buck House. During this special night, real people in the life of Pearl S. Buck will be “brought back from the dead.” Portrayed by actors, they will host the event, keeping up the tradition set by Ms. Buck, who hosted a Community Halloween Party every year. Mrs. Loris, housekeeper to Pearl S. Buck, will lead daring mortal visitors through the tour of the house and grounds. Richard Walsh, Ms. Buck’s husband, will show off his personal office. Pearl S. Buck herself will also make an appearance, as well as a character from the Dickens’ books she loved to read. At the end of the tour, the former gardener, George Gala, will offer his fresh-pressed cider made with an original antique apple press.
This will be the 7th year of the Ghost Tours. It is a project of the Pearl S. Buck Volunteer Association. Tours are approximately 40 minutes and will start at 4 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. This event is suitable for middle school ages through adults. Tours are $15 per person and pre-registration is required.

The Pearl S. Buck House is located at 520 Dublin Road in Perkasie.
