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

The Foundation hopes to provide funding to make the Children’s Room a bright, colorful, child-friendly space. The Foundation will continue to accept donations to assist in the project. Please consider a donation today.
