Clara Barton National Historic Site to Close Temporarily for Construction

Glen Echo, Md.– Starting Friday, Oct. 2, 2015 Clara Barton National Historic Site will be closed to the public for a rehabilitation project.

The rehabilitation project will help to preserve the historic house and the museum collections normally displayed on­site by replacing the failing metal roof and improving the fire suppression system. The rehabilitation will be done in a manner consistent with the historic significance of the house.

In preparation, the historic furnishings and many collection items were moved to a state-of-the-art museum collections facility in Maryland.

For updates on construction and additional information about Clara Barton and her work with the early American Red Cross please visit the website at www.nps.gov/clba or call 301-­320-­1400.
