Between 1861 and 1868, Clara Barton lived in a Washington, DC boarding house and employed as many as twelve clerks in her “Missing Soldiers Office.” In 1996 the General Services Administration was preparing the building for demolition when they discovered artifacts eventually proving that this was the lost office of the founder of the American Red Cross.

Our tourguide is Susan Rosenvold, Superintendent and Historian of Clara Barton’s Missing Soldiers Office. close
