Description: Free tours of the Clara Barton Birthplace Museum will be offered during the 10th Annual Blood Drive, which will be held at The Barton Center for Diabetes Educations Chabot Center, 60 Clara Barton Road, North Oxford, which is adjacent to the museum.

To celebrate Claras birthday (Dec. 25, 1821), the museum will be open for free tours, featuring an original quilt signed by Civil War doctors and officers given to honor Claras dedication. A new display was added in 2015, featuring over 130 American Red Cross Chapter and Disaster Relief pins.
