Sumerduck is a small rural village located equidistant between Fredericksburg, Culpeper, and Warrenton, in Fauquier County in the U.S. state of Virginia.

Sumerduck was named from the fact ducks flocked here in the summer.[1] Sumerduck is home to the major portion of the C.F. Phelps Wildlife Management Area, with several entrances to the reserve off of the major thoroughfare, VA Route 651.[2] Sumerduck is also home to Rogers Ford Farm Winery and Smith's Antiques.[3][4]

The Sumerduck Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[5]
