photo of welcome sign at Home, Wash.You’ve heard of the old saying “there’s no place like  home,” which is exactly the case for one small community here in Western Washington.

The Key Peninsula is home to the village of Home which has a rich history of the progressive culture that’s predominant here in Western Washington today.

On this 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. We’ll 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.
