More than 20 years ago, Richard Lyons was on a routine inspection when he discovered a trove of 19th century artifacts tucked away in the attic of an old boardinghouse on 7th Street in Washington. Many of those artifacts belonged to Clara Barton.
The discovery led to a decades-long project to preserve the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office and turn it into a museum.
You have the opportunity to tour the museum with the man who saved the Missing Soldiers Office. Richard Lyons will be leading tours and detailing how he made the discovery of the space where Clara Barton lived and worked during and immediately after the Civil War.
