The Clara Barton National Historic Site, located in Glen Echo, Maryland is another spot close to my home. Clara Barton’s home during the last fifteen years of her life is preserved and available for guided tours.
She was a pioneer in humanitarian efforts and the founder of the American Red Cross. Quite the lady, if you ask me!
The home is open for tours, each day beginning at 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. There are some temporary closures, due to an upcoming renovation.
Walking the grounds of the home, beneath the large trees, is a lovely experience.
Have you made your way to the Clara Barton house? I would love to hear about your experience in the comments below!
