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.
