​​​​​​​​​​​Moments in History

122 Maher Drive

This unassuming home on the Boys Town campus represents a revolution in residential youth care. Originally designed by Father Flanagan in the 1940s to house up to 25 boys in a dormitory-style arrangement, the house was converted to the first Boys Town Family Home in 1974 under Monsignor ​Hupp. Watch the video ​below to see how life at Boys Town ​​​​was transformed by the new program and its first home.
