Frieze board is a piece of trim that is attached to the top of an exterior wall and covers the joint between the soffit and the exterior wall. When hung directly beneath eaves or rafters, the frieze board provides the perfect background styling and surface for installing soffits and cornice trim.
There would probably also be a channel there to hold the soffit.
