Charles William Boyd, the iconic pioneer, came to Central Oregon in 1904, drawn by the potential to grow his cattle business. He purchased six acres by the Deschutes River with prospects for a water wheel and dam. A year later his family joined him and eventually his holdings grew to 600 acres supplying beef across the region. The area became know for its ranching and timber industries.
This website is maintained by Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association (BANA), a volunteer organization chartered by the city. We are always seeking the participation of anyone who lives or works in the neighborhood. See Get Involved.
