Father Flanagan's Home Is Now a Nebraska Passport Stop

2017 Nebraska Passport Logo 

The Nebraska Passport Program highlights 80 historic sites across the state that will give travelers truly memorable experiences. Father Flanagan's house on the Boys Town campus has been added to the 2017 tour.

The house was constructed in 1927 and was Father Flanagan's home until 1941, when he moved to the rectory of Dowd Memorial Chapel. Today, the Flanagan House's décor and furnishings interpret the year 1929, when Father Flanagan would have been in residence. Stepping across its threshold is like stepping back in time.

A Village of History

While you're on campus visiting Father Flanagan's home, be sure to visit the many other historic sites there, too. And, don't miss the Boys Town Hall of History, which contains artifacts, photographs and other items collected over Boys Town's 100 years of saving children and healing families — including Spencer Tracy's Best Actor Oscar™ and a book personally dedicated to Father Flanagan by a young John F. Kennedy.
