Named for James E. Boyd, mayor of Omaha 1881-1883 and governor of Nebraska (1891/1892-1893), Boyd’s Theatre originally opened at the northeast corner of 15th Street and Farnam Street in 1881, but burned ten years later.
It was rebuilt immediately at the southeast corner of 17th Street and Harney Street. In 1914 the Boyd’s Theatre was sold to the Burgess-Nash Co. who closed and razed it to build an annex to its department store.
