Description

Let’s Go to Town for Boys Town! 100 years of Saving Children, Healing Families
Let’s Go to Town for Boys Town! 100 years of Saving Children, Healing Families October 14, 2017 – January 21, 2018 Founded on December 12th, 1917 in Omaha, by Irish immigrant Father Edward Flanagan, Boys Town is today a worldwide leader in the childcare field. This exhibition will explore the organization’s history from its inauspicious beginnings in a rundown mansion at 25th and Dodge streets with only five young boys, through the 1930s with a major motion picture production featuring its history, to today providing assistance to over two million children and families each year. Through images, documents and artifacts from the Boys Town Hall of History collection and archives, visitors will trace the development of this Omaha fixture over the last 100 years.

Cost $11 Adults, 8 Seniors, 7 Children (3-12)
