Boyds began as a village for workers constructing the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) in the 1870s and is now served by the MARC train system. It is home to Black Hills Regional Park and Little Seneca Lake, as well as the historic Boyds Negro School, the only public school made for African Americans who lived in the area from 1885-1936. The school is currently open to the public the last Sunday of every month, from 1:00-3:00 PM.
