Boyce Historic District includes most of the historic, commercial, residential, religious, and educational buildings of the small town of Boyce, located in the northern Shenandoah Valley. Established in 1880 at the intersectionof 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 118 properties with buildings dating from 1880 to 1920 and reflects the town’s period of greatest growth and development.
