So far, we have found very little information about Summit. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Summit to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Summit - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Summit, please Contact Us.


Various Identification Codes ...

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies created a set of codes with a purpose similar to the GNIS codes. These codes are called the Federal Information Processing Standard (or the FIPS 55 codes). Although they are still used by some organizations, the FIPS codes are obsolete and will ultimately be replaced by the GNIS codes.

The following FIPS codes apply to Summit:

Place (Community) Code:  76592
State Code:  51 (Virginia)
County Code:  177 (Spotsylvania County)

Since the Place and County FIPS codes are not unique and can be repeated in other States, it's necessary to combine the State code with the Place and County FIPS codes to uniquely identify them - for example:

State/Place Code:  51/76592
State/County Code:  51/177

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Summit would have been located in Region #3 (the South Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Summit would have been located in Division #5 (the South Atlantic Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Summit would have been located in Region III (Region 3).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Summit would have been located in Region III (Region 3).

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Summit, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
