Clara Barton National Historic Site

Clara Barton National Historic Site

The house of the famed Clara Barton served not only as her home, but also as the headquarters, warehouse, and living quarters for the American Red Cross.

This online collection includes a number of 19th-century objects from Barton's life, including a cannonball fragment, a Red Cross flag, a boardgame, and an early gramophone.

Visitors are invited to take guided tours of the home.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this magazine of trusted historical writing, now in its 75th year, and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
