Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office

Located on 7th street, NW, Washington D.C., the site is the location where Clara Barton lived during and immediately after the Civil War. She used this property not only as a place to live, but also to store the supplies she received for her work on the battlefield, and later as an office to handle correspondence concerning missing soldiers. She responded to over 63,000 letters and by the time the office closed in 1867, she had identified the fate of over 22,000 men.  The discovery of the space is incredible as well. Please watch both short videos to learn more and then come see us in person to hear more fascinating details.  You can truly feel her presence in the space.
