The Clara Barton Homestead, also known as the Clara Barton Birthplace Museum, is a historic house museum at 60 Clara Barton Road in Oxford, Massachusetts. The museum celebrates the life and activities of Clara Barton (1821-1912), founder of the American Red Cross. She was born in this modest farmhouse, which was built by her father, Captain Stephen Barton, member of a prominent local family, in 1818. Barton lived here until 1853.[2]

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1] The museum is open seasonally, or by appointment. It has been restored to the period when Barton lived there.[3]
