Boyce Historic District includes most of the historic, commercial, residential, religious, and educational buildings of the small Clarke County town of Boyce, located in the northern Shenandoah Valley. Established in 1880 at the intersection of the newly constructed Shenandoah Valley Railroad and the Winchester-Berry’s Ferry Turnpike, Boyce emerged as an important commercial center and shipping point for local farmers. The town’s architectural fabric represents a rich variety of building types and styles typical of the late-19th- and 20th-centuries, including the Queen Anne, Gothic Revival, Classical Revival, and Craftsman styles, as well as vernacular forms. The district includes buildings dating from 1880 to 1920, reflecting the town’s period of greatest growth and development.
