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 District, 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.
Now, in the midst of our Centennial Celebration, the village of Boys Town is more exciting than ever and we have some baseball-themed activities throughout campus. Stop by the Boys Town display at the Omaha Baseball Village to get information on visiting the village of Boys Town, enjoy some fun coloring activities for the family and even take your photo with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.
