Clara Barton Birthplace Museum

Add to plan Remove from plan

In 1839, at the age of seventeen, Clara became a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse in North Oxford, Massachusetts. Clara earned praise when she refused to physically punish her students, yet was able to produce disciplined scholars. She later wrote, “Child that I was, I did not know that the surest test of discipline is its absence.” The Clara Barton Birthplace Museum is open seasonally and by appointment. Guests enjoy a rich learning experience touring Clara’s childhood home.
