Welcome to the Synanon website
This part of the site is for former Synanon residents only.
Please respect our privacy.
If you are a former Synanon resident we'd love to have you on the site.
We have 1,817
former residents already listed on the site, most with email addresses
and parts of their personal stories.
We have 4,515 pictures of people, places,
and things from Synanon's earliest days up through pictures as we are today.
In addition we have links to personal and business websites, poetry,
extended stories, Synanon history, email lists, etc.
Registering will allow you to see all this and upload pictures, update your personal
listing and see all our email addresses. But you'll have to accept "cookies".
Here are thumbnails of a few pictures to give you an idea
of what's on the site.
A few names you may know: Chuck, Dede, Jady, Betty, Tomales, Ron, Dan G, Dan S, Jimmy, Athens Club, Laura, Lance, Rod, Naya, Pierre, Badger, Alice, Dorothy, Ben, Jockton, Wilbur, Nick, Peter ...
