Welcome to Boys Town

Boys Town

The famous Spencer Tracey film, for which he won an Academy Award, was based on the true story of Father Flanagan and his creation of a haven for abused and abandoned boys. Today, the program has evolved into the Girls and Boys Town organization, with over 20 sites nationwide. The original Village of Boys Town in Omaha is still thriving. Visitors can wander the Hall of History (home to Tracey's Oscar), the Father Flanagan House, the Dowd Memorial Chapel and other sites in this idyllic spot.
