Boyd County is a county in the State of Nebraska. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 2,099. Its county seat is Butte. The county was formed in 1891 and named after James E. Boyd, the Nebraska Governor at the time.
In the Nebraska license plate system, Boyd County is represented by the prefix 63 (it had the 63rd largest number of vehicles registered in the county when the license plate system was established in 1922).
In the 2010 United States Census, three incorporated villages had populations of fewer than 10 people: Anoka, population 6, Gross, population 2, and Monowi, population 1. Monowi was the only incorporated city in the United States with only one resident at the 2010 census.
All land north of the Keya Paha River (which includes most of Boyd County and a smaller portion of neighboring Keya Paha County) was not originally part of Nebraska at the time of statehood, but was transferred from Dakota Territory in 1882.
