Boyds, Washington.

Boyds
is a census-designated place (CDP) in Ferry County, Washington, United States.

History Edit

Four native villages stood near the mouth of the Kettle River, and by the 1880s, several natives owned ranches and raised considerable amounts of grain and vegetables. An important ferry crossing helped transport goods to other markets. In 1901 a railroad bridge was built and ended the need of the ferry. Boyd's thrived as an agriculural community. The community declined after it's best agricultural land was flooded under 30 feet of water because of the rising Lake Roosevelt due to Coulee Dam closing it's gates.  The community store and gas station was torn down in 2015 with no replacement.

Small scale farming still exists today.
