We learned so much about Clara Barton. This site also has a Jr. Ranger program for children to work on. Beautiful house, interesting tour.

I am grateful for the opportunity to walk thru the house of such a notable historic figure. The house itself is a bit odd and can use some maintenance. But there is some unique features that make it worth a trip. Basically, there is just a 45-minute house tour here. So it is not a huge investment of time.

Really enjoyed visiting this historic site and the adjacent Glen Echo Park. So much history within the house and the Park is a throw back to the old type amusement park.
Excellent free tour of founder of American Red Cross

Clara Barton lived and worked in this 30 room house for over 20 years. It is operated by the National Park Service which has free tours on the hour beginning at 10 AM. We were the only ones on the first Sunday tour. Susan, a park ranger, gave an excellent, informative talk on the life of Clara Barton and the history of the house. If you have time, visit Glen Echo Park right by the house. It was a grand old amusement park which is also operated by the National Park Service.
Wonderful and Educational Free Tour!!!

This is a wonderful historical site for any one to visit. My kids ages 4, and 8 really learned a lot on this tour and it was really neat to hear the stories and see the rooms in Clara's house. Our tour guide did an excellent job presenting and answering questions about Clara and the home. They also have a little gift store where you may purchase books and items relating to Clara Barton. Several of the books were appropriate for children. What a great way to learn about the past!!!!
