Birthday Celebration at Little Levels Heritage Fair

The decision to situate the annual Little Levels Heritage Festival on the grounds of the Pearl S. Buck Birthplace in Hillsboro and holding it at the end of June was originally made to honor the world famous author – winner of the Pulitzer and Nobel prizes. Born on June 26, 1892, this year marks Buck’s 126th birthday. B.J. Gudmundsson, President of the Pearl S.
