This benefit for The Summit Historical Society is the brainchild of Stephen W. Schwartz, AIA, Architect. Family teams are pick an historical building in or close to downtown. They are given a set of LEGO blocks to use to replicate the building's facade. Family registration information will be available.
The Summit Historical Society
The Summit Historical Society was formed in 1929, but was largely inactive until the early 1960’s. In 1962, the Summit Herald lamented that Summit did not have a historical society, only to find out that one did exist. Spurred by renewed interest in Summit's history, the Summit Historical Society has actively pursued the preservation and dissemination of information about Summit's past. Today, we have assembled a large archive of photographs, genealogy files, Summit house files, other historic structures surveys, maps, newspapers, postcards, yearbooks and city tax atlases. The archive also includes city directories dating back to 1890. We are continually adding new items to this archive, and we welcome donations of materials relating to Summit’s past.
