Good ole Belle. Famous female spy of the confederate. Great old house with nice garden. I can't wait to see it in the spring when it will be in bloom. Lots of history in the area. Be sure to stop and then go across the street to view the Roundhouse train building.

In assembling "gift" bags for those out-of-town guests attending my daughter's wedding, I found this place very helpful! There were plenty of brochures that gave our guests a chance to learn about our community and visit those places that were of interest to them!

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.
