​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Experience the History of Hope

When Father Edward J. Flanagan purchased the Overlook Farm in 1921, it became the new, permanent site of Boys Town. Over the decades that followed, schools, churches and homes were built, and tens of thousands of young lives were transformed. When you visit the​ Village ​of Boys Town, a National Historic Landmark Di​strict, you’ll get an unforgettable ​glimpse ​into the history of ​an organization that has ​given ​​new hope ​​​to so many ​at-risk children over the past 100 years.
