Summit

Union Township



1984 Adams County History Book

Union #5 or Union Center School is located in the center of Union Township. At one time the railroad passed not far from the north side of the schoolhouse. Those tracks were moved but the right-of-way is still in evidence. Railroad men thought the spot to be one of the highest, if not the highest on the line, so the name of Summit was given to the school and to the nearby cemetery.
