NRHP Reference Number


Sumerduck Historic District encompasses a village in southwestern Fauquier County with an extraordinarily well-preserved and little-altered collection of late-19th- and early-20th-century buildings that effectively represent all critical aspects of Sumerduck’s modest history—domestic, commercial, religious, and educational. In the context of small crossroad villages in Fauquier County, Sumerduck retained through its period of significance (ca. 1882 to ca. 1950) an unusually high level of functional and visual consistency. Located on what is now known as Remington Road at its junction with Sumerduck Road, the village contains two churches, a school, the late-19th-century Henry Broadus Jones Store, and the Sumerduck Trading Company (Emory Henry Wax’s Store), constructed ca. 1950. The village is also graced with a handful of dwellings and associated dependencies. The Sumerduck Historic District’s significance was highlighted in a first-hand history prepared in 1970 by a long-time resident, Olive V. Jones, that delineates the history of the small town and its residents.
