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!

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.

This historic home now houses the Martinsburg-Berkeley Convention and Visitors Bureau. A great way to use a historic place. The museum displays that are on the 2nd and 3rd floors are great also

The friendly folks at the CVB (also located here) let me look around eventhough it was closed the day i was there. If an alluring damsel serving as a double agent during the civil war sound interesting, you'll find Belle Boyd House fascinating.
