Clara Barton NHS is open for visitation on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays by guided tours of the first floor at 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, 3:00 pm, and 4:00 pm. Entrance is free.

The 30-45 minute program will explore the many stories of Clara Barton's amazing life as well as some of the other individuals who lived and served in this unique home.

The house remains unfurnished and the second and third floors of the building remain closed due to structural concerns.

Clara Barton lived in this home from 1897 until her death in 1912. It served as a home, headquarters and warehouse to the organization she founded, the American Red Cross.

Clara Barton National Historic Site is administered by the George Washington Memorial Parkway and while you are visiting in the area, you may wish to visit one of the nearby sites.
