Victorian Ambiance

Boyd Tavern 

Historic Boydton is an 18th century town located in Southern Virginia. A completed street enhancement project renders a charming Victorian ambiance to the entire historic district, which includes quaint dining and shopping opportunities and year-round festivals.

As the county seat, it boasts a unique hexastyle Greek Revival courthouse. Built and designed by Jefferson's own builder, it is a replica of the State Capitol in Richmond. From its central location on a lush court square, it commands your attention, but is quite at home among the quaint, vintage buildings surrounding it. The Boyd Tavern (C 1790), a former stagecoach stopover for the Boydton-Petersburg Plank Road, represents a fine example of work by Jacob Holt.

A walking tour highlights a replica of the Boydton-Petersburg Plank Road, a pre-civil war, timbered turnpike, which played a crucial role in the transporting of tobacco to the Petersburg tobacco market.
