The McKinley Home for Boys was located at 13840 Riverside Drive, Sherman Oaks, formerly Van Nuys. Original property of McKinley Home for Boys lists a Van Nuys address. However, due to property rezoning issues the location of institution was changed to Sherman Oaks. The home moved to San Dimas, California in 1961.
