The Boyds Historical Society (BHS) was organized in 1975 (as the Boyds/Clarksburg Historical Society). Our membership consists of local residents who share an interest in preserving our community's history. We welcome potential new members, contributions, suggestions, and requests for information.

  • Preserve the Boyds Negro School as a Maryland Historic Site;
  • Promote and encourage activities that educate, entertain, and develop community fellowship;
  • Establish an archive and museum facility for the community; and
  • Provide space for community functions, events, and festivals.
