There will be a wide array of holiday gift-giving options available, from clothing and crafts to antiques and cookies. The Boutique is also a great way to catch up with friends and enjoy a free cup of special recipe fragrant hot cider which will be served all day.  Admission is free, and a percentage of the profits benefit the Historical Society’s mission to preserve and promote the history of Summit.  

As a special highlight this year, author Cynthia Martin, will be on hand to sign copies of her just-released book, “Summit Historic Homes," which features more than 200 photos of local buildings, most of which have never before been published. The cover price is $21.99, and Martin, also a Historical Society trustee, is donating all of her royalties to the Summit Historical Society.
