The town originated as a railroad town and was named Summit because it was thought to be the highest point on the Illinois Central Railroad between New Orleans and Jackson, Mississippi, though nearby Brookhaven actually holds the title.

I hope you enjoyed my little trip to a small town, get out when you can and explore some small towns near you and then research their History you might be surprised at what you discover. I love history.
