Boyd Tavern, also known as Old Boyd Tavern, Watson's Ordinary, and Shepherd's Inn, is a historic tavern located in Boyd Tavern, Albemarle County, Virginia. It was built about 1831, and is a two-story, two-over-two, three bay double pile frame structure. It sits on a fieldstone foundation and has a side gable roof.
