This year, Summit High School students will be on hand to present a verbal history and pictorial tours of some of Summit’s beautiful historic homes built during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. 

“A Taste of Summit” will also include a silent auction.  All profits will benefit the Summit Historical Society, a non-profit organization.  The Society depends on private donations and a volunteer board to operate the Carter House, Summit’s oldest remaining residence, as well as maintain its historic objects and archives.  The Summit Historical Society collaborates with Summit Downtown, Inc. to organize this much anticipated annual event.
