Stop and take a look around. The water well you passed once provided drinking water to some of the 1,000 residents of Summit City in 1877. You are standing at the site of an old oil boom town where there were one hundred and eighty buildings, five hotels, two banks, one opera house, forty stores, two doctors, and two attorneys.
Today, the land is owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
