A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
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).

The following FIPS codes apply to Summit:
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:
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).
