Summit Playhouse

Summit Playhouse

This was the Summit Library from 1891 (more or less) until 1911, when the library went from the hands of the residents to the hands of the city, and relocated a couple blocks away to a bigger building. The building remained abandoned from 1911-1918, when the Summit Dramatic Club (now the Summit Playhouse Association) was founded as a WWI relief effort; the club leased the building from the Library Association for $1/year… until 1967(!), when the defunct Library Association deeded the property to the Playhouse Association.

It appears to be a community/amateur theater, and at the moment, they put on three shows a year.
