A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles Show More...about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine. Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated. Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Our new workshop series this spring will offer an introduction intoShow More... some of the things that will help anyone discover a little more about their home. The workshop takes place two evenings in April: Reading Your House, April 18, 2017, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. will introduce attendees to the fundamental tools you'll need to start seeing your house in a new light: introductory topics on historic architecture including: formal and vernacular architecture, regional differences in house types (pre-1850), basic styles and construction techniques from 1700 to 1920, how to measure and draw a house, and how to look around at the landscape of houses in Montgomery County. Researching Your Home: April 25, 2017, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. will examine various documents related to house construction and occupancy that will give researchers more information about how houses and architecture function. We'll look at deeds and probate records, mechanics' liens, maps, census and tax records, and other sources of documentary evidence related to houses. Part of this session will look at various local and regional resources that relate to the restoration and preservation of historic architecture. Individual class $25.00 for members of the Historical Society of Montgome Mary Lou McFarland, Senior Preservation Specialist of the Heritage Conservancy will discuss the role that the Conservancy plays in the preservation and protection of significant open spaces, natural resources, and the historic heritage of Bucks and Montgomery Counties.
