Summit Historical Minute

Council President Rubino has introduced a "Summit Historical Minute" at the beginning of each Council meeting to encourage awareness of our City's rich history to our community. This feature highlights people and places in Summit, researched and presented by Summit High School students and residents. We will be posting these "minutes" here after every meeting, so stay tuned to learn interesting tidbits of Summit's history every month. 

For more information on Summit's history, please visit the Summit Historical Society at the Carter House at 90 Butler Parkway, or at

Summit Historical Minute July 7, 2015


From the Director -- August 2015

The hottest book this summer is the long-awaited novel Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee. Set twenty years after To Kill a Mockingbird, the adventurous Scout returns home to Alabama to visit her ailing and elderly father Atticus Finch. Much has been written about this long-lost work. Many are disappointed in the revelation that Atticus may not be the hero we all admired but a mortal Southern man living through the turbulence of desegregation in the 1950s.
