Restoration of the Missing Soldiers Office

by Lori Eggleston. 0 Comments


     I spent a day in Washington D.C. this week to see the completed restoration work on the Missing Soldiers Office building.  It looks much different than it did when I first saw it over a year ago.  The interior now appears much like it did when Clara Barton lived and worked there.  This is a big step toward being able to open the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum to the public.  Now we can focus more on the exhibits and the artifacts to be displayed in the building.       In the meantime, let’s take a look at the work that has been done.  You can see some of the “before” photos here:

I unfortunately am having trouble loading my photos to the site, so the recent photos can be viewed here:

     My next update should be on the displays in the Missing Soldiers Office.  I am looking forward to sharing them with you!  In the meantime, you can see more photos and follow our progress on our website,
