Belle Boyd House and Civil War Museum
Come inside the Belle Boyd House, a 1850s Greek Revival style home. On the right of the entry hall is the original ball room decorated in Victorian style as it would have been in the late 1800s. This is the only room in the house decorated as living quarters. This space was originally built by Benjamin Boyd in 1853 and housed the General Store that he ran for five years. Exhibits on Berkeley County history fill these rooms, some rotating and some permanent. Permanent spaces include a Costume Room, Black History, Industry, War & Military, County History and Toy Rooms. Famous civil War Spy, Belle Boyd, spent part of her childhood in this house built in 1853. During the war, she supplied information to Stonewall Jackson about enemy activities and was imprisoned twice before being banished to England.
