Clara Barton District
Clara Barton District
UUA Districts & Regions

The Clara Barton District was formed in 2000 when the Central Mass District and Connecticut Valley District merged. District delegates at the time of the merger chose to name the district after Clarissa Harlowe (Clara) Barton, a Universalist, who was born within our district borders in North Oxford, Massachusetts, on Christmas Day in 1821. She is among the most honored women in U.S. history and is best known for founding the American Red Cross in 1881. Geographically, we encompass central and western Massachusetts, and all but the southwest corner of Connecticut. Numerically, there are 63 congregations and one newly emerging congregation.  At the district annual meeting on April 30, 2016, delegates voted to begin the process of dissolution over the next year as New England's four districts continue their regional collaboration.
