Boyd, near Roberts, was named for John Boyd, a homesteader on Rock Creek. It became a rural independent station in 1965. This is an irrigated area with crops watered by melting snow from the Beartooth Mountains. Boyd serves as a trading center for farmers in the wide countryside up to Shane Ridge. Livestock, grain, and sugar beets are shipped from the Northern Pacific depot.(from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)
