  • Clara Barton is a personal hero of mine and seeing the space where she did a lot of her work and lay the foundations for the American Red Cross was amazing! The staff was so kind and loving. It was so wonderful to walk where she walked and see where she impacted the country. She is such an amazing woman and we are so lucky to have all of her property to look through. Also the way that the space was discovered is so fascinating! I highly recommend going to this location especially since it's conveniently located.
  • Wonderful! Learned much more than I had thought.
