Belle Boyd is a fascinating lady and the Docent brought her to life for us. She walked us through Belle's life during and after the Civil War. We enjoyed the tour through the house.

It is one of the oldest houses in Front Royal. The staff was very friendly when we toured the house. The history and stories that go with it are very interesting. Many Civil War officers had meeting here.
