Clara Barton National Historic SiteClara Barton's property was a reflection of her personality: practical, thrifty, and just a bit eccentric. Visitors to her home frequently commented on the utilitarian grounds filled with fruit trees and rows of vegetables instead of formal gardens. Although the property may have appeared cluttered and ill-kept to guests, the estate was largely self-sustaining, and Miss Barton could gather the food for her semi-strict vegetarian diet from her own Garden.
