Summit, a Township of the Second Class, is the second youngest (Lawrence Park is younger by 72 years) and the second smallest (Lawrence Park is only 1.84 sq. miles vs. Summit at 24.04 sq. miles) township in Erie County, Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1854, out of the western part of Greene, the eastern part of McKean and a small section from the northern part of Waterford Township. Many believe the name was derived from early settlers who journeyed from the lakeshore of Erie upwards until reaching the dividing ridge running east to west (which separates the Lake Erie Watershed from the Ohio River Basin), to the top or the “Summit”.
No longer entirely a farm community, Summit is an attractive mix of agricultural, residential, commercial, industrial and entertainment facilities. We welcome you to visit us soon!
