In addition, a 50/50 raffle will benefit Friends of the Firetruck, a collaboration between the Historical Society and the Summit Fire Department. The goal is to raise the funds necessary to preserve and display the city’s decommissioned 1927 Chemical Engine No. 1 in a new garage on the property of the Carter House at 90 Butler Parkway, home of the Society and believed to be Summit’s oldest remaining building.  Today the house is a local history museum and home to archives that include photos, newspapers, maps, postcards and city directories that date back more than 100 years. All materials are available to the public free of charge.

Corporate sponsors of this year’s Taste of Summit include Coldwell-Banker Realtors, Overlook Medical Center, Hilltop Community Bank and Somerset Hills Bank.
