Pearl S. Buck Memorial Hall to be Built in Puchon

July 04,1999
A memorial hall for U.S. novelist and social advocate Pearl S. Buck will be established in Puchon City.
Puchon's City Hall announced on July 4 that it will build the Pearl S. Buck Memorial Hall in Puchon's Sosa District, where the Nobel prize winner operated an orphanage for war orphans.
Two billion won will be spent to construct a 165-square-meter exhibition hall and a 1,320-square-meter park, which will open in 2001.
Pearl S. Buck established an orphanage called the 'Sosa Hope House' in 1964, with the help of a Korean businessman, Yoo Il-han, who donated the land to the novelist. However, the Sosa Hope House closed after Buck's death in 1973.
