EverGreene has just begun work to restore the Clara Barton Missing Soldier’s Office, which has been unoccupied the past 100 years.
The property, owned by the GSA, has sat uninhabited since 1911. Just before demolition was scheduled, a GSA employee stumbled across some artifacts in the attic, which uncovered the history of the building, and found it to be Clara Barton’s Missing Soldier’s Office, where she worked tirelessly during the civil war. We’re so honored to be a part of this important project and are very excited this historic building will be saved and renovated into a museum where guests can come and learn about the “Angel of the Battlefield” and founder of the American Red Cross. Watch the video above to hear Richard Lyons’ story of how he found the hidden artifacts.
