The Bovey Visitor Center


Bovey Center Inside

The Charles A. & Sue Ford Bovey Visitor Center is a tribute to Charles and Sue Ford Bovey located in Nevada City. The Bovey's loved history and in 1944 visited Virginia City and recognized its historic value. They joined others from the Historic Landmark Society of Montana. The Bovey's spent much of their own money to purchase the buildings, property, and even moved several buildings alongside the twelve existing in Nevada City in order to save them from destruction. They are recognized as pioneers in the field of historic preservation.  There is no charge to visit this building when open during summer operating hours.
