This is also the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Convention and Visitor's Bureau. The building is multipurpose. I had never heard of Belle Boyd before, but there are signs outside of this building, which she lived in for around 5 years, that give some information on her. Upon entering, we were greeted by a really nice woman who gave us a lot of... More

As has been mentioned in other reviews, there in not a large collection of historical items on display in this house. Then again, the primary function of the structure is to house the Convention & Visitors Bureau - which it does quite well. It does have enough information on Belle Boyd to give an overview of her exploits during the... More

I had heard of Belle Boyd, so it was fun to visit her house. We got a personal guided tour by the man working there.

Civil War buffs will enjoy visiting this house where Belle Boyd, the Confederate spy, lived for several years. The gentleman in charge was very helpful in explaining Belle's connection to General "Stonewall" Jackson. Their are photos and exhibits which are interesting. There is no charge.

I loved this house and the tour! The home itself and artifacts are fascinating, but best of all was my tour guide! He was so patient with me because I was on crutches, and his willingness to impart his knowledge was fabulous. I highly recommend a visit!

Kinda stuffy, but the cvb folks are nice. The history of Belle Boyd is very interesting. You could almost see her in the house still.

If you're in the Martinsburg area, it's worth a stop for some history and info. I'd never been in the area before and it was my first stop - good choice to then plan out my visit.

I was eager to see the house in which young Belle Boyd spent her younger days. I was expecting a well restored 19th century house filled with period furnishings and artifacts from Boyd's family. Instead I found an eclectic mishmash of seemingly unrelated items on display throughout the house, many of which would be of interest to residence of the... More
