    "Their first view of the home was the fluttering of the United States flag from the tall flagpole above the house, and next, the Red Cross flag floating in the breeze over the central door, which was thrown hospitably open to receive the guests." ~ Stephen E. Barton, nephew of Clara Barton

    Clara Barton National Historic Site commemorates the life of Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross. The home served as the headquarters and warehouse for the organization. From this house, Barton organized American Red Cross relief efforts for victims of natural disasters and war.
