Friday's Northwest Now travels to Home, explores anarchist history

Posted: December 11, 2014

You’ve heard of the old saying, “There’s no place like home”–well, that’s exactly the case for one small community here in Western Washington. The Key Peninsula is home to the town of Home, which has a rich history of the progressive culture that’s predominant in Western Washington today.

Home PicOn Friday’s special edition of Northwest Now, we’ll travel to Home and take a closer look at what was once a turn-of-the-century anarchist colony.

“It was an intentional community set up to make it possible for people to have freedom, but yet not step on each other’s toes. It wasn’t socialism; it was kind of what you would dream of as a Utopian community,” said Leyla Lugenbill, great granddaughter of two of the communities original founders.

We’ll also hear from Justin Wadland, author of the book “Trying Home,” as well as several current members of the Home community on this edition of Northwest Now.
