The home of Fort Granby, where noted Revolutionary War battles were fought, Cayce was formed in 1914. The city originated from a trading post which was seized by the British army during the Revolutionary War and later bought by William J. Cayce and his family. In the early 1900s, “Uncle Billy” Cayce converted the building into his family residence and opened a nearby general store, which was referred to by the locals as Cayce Crossing. The town was later incorporated in 1914 and named for Cayce and his family.
