final

Hilltown,

 –
 
The
 
living
 
preservation
 
of 
 
the
 
Pearl
 
S.
 
Buck
 
House,
 
the
 
anchor
 
of 
 
both
 
the
 
historic
 
site
 
and
 
the
 
accomplished
 
woman’s
 
life,
 
enters
 
its
 
final
 
phase
 
of 
 
construction.
 
The
 
third
 
phase
 
of 
 
preservation,
 
designed
 
by
 
Mills
 
+
 
Schnoering
 
Architects
 
LLC
 
and
 
contracted
 
by
 
Wu
 
&
 
Associates,
 
Inc.,
 
ensures
 
the
 
safety
 
of 
 
the
 
site
 
and
 
its
 
long
term
 
sustainability
 
for
 
the
 
enjoyment
 
of 
 
future
 
visitors.
 
While
 
stewardship
 
responsibilities
 
can
 
overburden
 
some
 
nonprofit
 
organizations
 
in
 
their
 
efforts
 
to
 
keep
 
momentum
 
through
 
the
 
many
 
stages
 
of 
 
the
 
preservation
 
process,
 
Pearl
 
S.
 
Buck
 
International®
 
prides
 
itself 
 
on
 
the
 
organization’s
 
ability
 
to
 
move
 
this
 
project
 
forward
 
quickly
 
from
 
grant
 
acquisition
 
in
 
December
 
to
 
matching
 
fundraising
 
and
 
bidding
 
the
 
project
 
by
 
January.
 
“Preservation
 
is
 
paramount
 
to
 
our
 
mission,
 
goals
 
and
 
overall
 
objectives,
 
This
 
last
 
phase
 
is
 
the
 
final
 
leg
 
of 
 
an
 
8
 
year
 
 journey
 
and
 
we
 
upheld
 
a
 
tenacious
 
focus
 
to
 
see
 
it
 
through
 
to
 
fruition,”
 
Teri
 
Mandic,
 
vice
 
president
 
of 
 
programs,
 
Pearl
 
S.
 
Buck
 
International
 
said.
 
Pearl
 
S.
 
Buck’s
 
dynamic
 
legacy
 
creates
 
interest
 
in
 
all
 
aspects
 
of 
 
her
 
accomplished
 
life.
 
The
 
site
 
is
 
one
 
of 
 
very
 
few
 
collections
 
of 
 
goods
 
used
 
by
 
a
 
family
 
during
 
a
 
period
 
of 
 
significance
 
and
 
one
 
of 
 
even
 
fewer
 
attributed
 
to
 
a
 
woman.
 
The
 
site
 
attracts
 
many
 
visitors
 
who
 
are
 
in
 
awe
 
of 
 
Ms.
 
Buck’s
 
dedication
 
to
 
her
 
adopted
 
family,
 
while
 
others
 
find
 
inspiration
 
in
 
her
 
Nobel
 
and
 
Pulitzer
 
prizes.
 
“There
 
is
 
so
 
much
 
depth
 
to
 
the
 
story
 
that
 
we
 
can
 
peel
 
back
 
the
 
layers
 
of 
 
the
 
onion
 
for
 
the
 
next
 
10
 
to
 
20
 
years
 
and
 
still
 
have
 
more
 
stories
 
to
 
tell
 
about
 
the
 
legacy
 
of 
 
Pearl
 
S.
 
Buck,”
 
said
 
Pearl
 
S.
 
Buck
 
International

Pamela
 
Carroll.

to
 
be

considering
 
Ms.
 
Buck’s
 
commitment
 
to
 
fostering
 
appreciation
 
between
 
Eastern
 
and
 
Western
 
cultures.
 
“She
 
had
 
a
 
very
 
deep
 
understanding
 
of 
 
the
 
lives
 
of 
 
the
 
Chinese
 
people
 
and
 
villages
 
at
 
the
 
timetheir
 
struggles,
 
their
 
poverty,”
 
reflected
 
Wu.
