Welcome to Washington Square Residence

Owned and operated by the Lynn Home for Young Women, Inc.


The Washington Square Residence

Since the early days the Industrial Revolution LHW/WSR has provided safe and appropriate housing to single individuals. Once a women’s only facility, we now offer affordable, supportive, and accessible housing to all. Conveniently located on Rte 1A North, we are on the bus line and within walking distance to the commuter rail, shopping, and health care. We are close to the beach, the downtown arts & cultural district and North Shore Community College.
