Freelance writer Jonathan Shipley is working on a story for a state history magazine, and he’s currently doing some research on old Washington State homes for “wayward girls” including the Home of the Good Shepherd.
Shipley has asked us to reach out to the neighborhood to find anyone who a) lived there, b) know someone who lived there who could connect Shipley with that person; c) worked there, or d) knew someone who worked there before it closed in 1970.
If you’ve got any leads that match any of the above, shoot Shipley an email at: [email protected].
If you’re interested in reading about the Home of he Good Shepherd, Shipley wrote a piece that appears in Vintage Seattle. It’s fascinating stuff. Click here to read it.
