Summit Inn is a sprawling old resort hotel built in 1905 overlooking
Uniontown. In its heydey, the Summit hosted many notable guests
including presidents and captains of industry. The Summit is visable
from Uniontown below and is prominent as you crest Chestnut Ridge
on US 40 heading east. The view back down to the city is breathtaking.
The Summit retains its yesteryear character to this day. Amenities
including golfing and a nice restaurant are available.
The Summit Inn is one of the last remaining grand porch hotels in America. The history of The Summit Inn really begins in 1806 when Albert Gallatin, the Secretary of the Treasury under President Thomas Jefferson, suggested a National Road “to connect the East with the West”. Albert Gallatin lived only twenty miles from the present day Summit Inn.
